Burnside  Painting  Group

Community Art Group

Who are we?

We are a not-for-profit group, run for the benefit of our members.

We have been part of the community for over 50 years.   Our group is open to both beginners and more experienced artists.  All are welcome to join.

Our group is run by a committee, which meets once a month to plan classes, workshops, social events and exhibitions.   Members are welcome to nominate for a committee position and have a say in relation to the Group's activities.  


The Burnside Painting Group holds regular sessions of painting, drawing and multi-media art classes for members.  

We also have regular social events, competitions, exhibitions and art demonstrations.

An annual membership fee entitles members to a range of benefits, including the opportunity to learn new art techniques and styles, attend social events, and participate in the Group's exhibitions. 


Art exhibitions have always been part of the annual calendar of activities of the Burnside Painting Group, allowing members to show and sell their works.

Our exhibitions have been held at a variety of venues.  

Open air displays of art along the footpaths of North Terrace were popular with our Group in the 1960s and 1970s,  We also displayed work at David Jones, the Burnside Civic Centre, community centres and halls, banks, libraries and hospitals.
