The aim of the group is to work creatively in good company, in a variety of media, while developing our skill and knowledge. It is fun to paint, draw or otherwise create images with friends who are happy to advise on any problems and share their knowledge. Most weeks we just do our own thing but we have a monthly theme to work to if we wish and we hold occasional workshops and tutored sessions. On the last meeting of the month we bring in recently completed work to discuss and enjoy.
We enjoy the peace and concentration of our first hour, followed by a refreshment break, which gives an opportunity to look at each other’s work and have a chat.
We warmly welcome new members - do come and give it a go!
The Art Group meets in the Scout and Guide Headquarters, Matlock Green every Tuesday from 9.45am to 12.15. There is a charge of £2.50 per member per week to cover the cost of room hire and refreshments. The coordinator is Ruth Gordon, who can be contacted by email, or telephone on 01629 56636. Please note that a second art group, known as the Painting Group, meets weekly on Wednesday mornings.
