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.

SALA 2020 

This year the Burnside Painting Group is holding a scaled-down Annual Exhibition, which will run during SALA from 23rd July to 28 August at our usual venue, the Burnside Civic Centre at Tusmore.

This year, due to COVID considerations, there will be no launch and awards event, and we will forgo the formal selection and judging process. 

The venue will not be open to the public on weekends.

A reduced entry fee of $2 per entry will apply for our 2020 exhibition. Entrants must be fully paid up members.
