This group meets to broaden minds and to inform, educate and entertain the members whilst also giving them the opportunity to contribute to the meetings.

Where are the boundaries of Art? Painting, sculpture, design, architecture, photography, cinema, theatre, garden design, computer generated imagery, 3d printing, typography, advertising and all art on the Internet. Are these the boundaries, or do they stretch even further?

We may not answer the questions, but we will have lively and informed discussions.

Art Appreciation Group Two meets in “The Studio” at St Elphin’s, Darley Dale on the third Monday of each month from 2.00pm to 4.00pm.

There is a charge of £3.00 per person per session, which includes the cost of tea, or coffee and biscuits.
