Burnside  Painting  Group


Community Art Group

Thanks for visiting!

The Burnside Painting Group is a group of South Australians who enjoy creating art in a friendly environment with fellow artists.  We are a not-for-profit community group, run by a team of volunteers.

Members range from experienced artists to complete beginners. New members are welcome.  Contact us

We hold painting and drawing sessions, tutored by experienced practising artists.  You can also attend if you are not participating in a class, and enjoy the companionship of other members as you work on your own projects.

You will find more information about our classes, workshops, social events, exhibitions and more by browsing through our website. Why not join us?  We hope to see you soon.

Annual Exhibition 2020


This year we held a scaled-down Annual Exhibition, from 23rd July to 28 August in the Atrium at the Burnside Civic Centre, Greenhill Road, Tusmore.  This year, due to COVID considerations, there was no launch and awards event, and no formal selection and judging process.


Visitors to the exhibition were encouraged to vote for their favourite work, with the work/s scoring the most votes to receive the Phyllis Kopp Award.  


PHYLLIS KOPP AWARD WINNERS


Congratulations to the joint winners of this year's Phyllis Kopp Award: 


  • Judith Crowley for her watercolour (below) "Persimmons", and

End of year function

After a challenging year, we think it's nigh on time to shake off the shackles of 2020, spritz it up, and have some fun!


For this year's end of year event, we ask you to dress up a little, donning a hat and/or gloves, or just wear some sparkles, sequins, or boa! It is, after all, the 20's once again!


More details to be provided soon.  One for the diary, for sure!


What's coming up next year?

Our Committee is already working on a schedule of classes and activities for 2021.


We've been talking to Artists including Greg O'Leary, Rod Bax, Alan Ramachandran, Lisa Ingerson and Lorraine Brown, as well as other potential tutors.


Watch this space for further information, coming soon!
