Companion painting sessions


Our normal Companion Painting sessions have been put into recess for a while, replaced with a series of BPG "SALA Studio" sessions, leading up to our Annual Exhibition in July - August 2021.

Commencing Monday 3 May until Monday 28 June (a total of 5 sessions), these sessions will run from 10am - 12 noon every fortnight.   We will adjust a week forward or back for the public holiday on 14th June. 

Margaret Tuckey will be our roving tutor/coach for each session, available to assist you with new or uncompleted works which you hope to exhibit in SALA. She is a very experienced tutor, able to work and advise across all mediums.  

There will be a $10 charge per person per session (payable in cash) to help us cover costs.

As numbers are limited due to space restrictions please register your interest with our Enrolment Officer at [email protected] and indicate which sessions you would like to attend. 

About our Companion Painting sessions

Companion painting is an option for Burnside Painting Group members. 
Work on your own projects, without a tutor, in the side hall at St Matthews Homes, alongside the main hall where the classes are held. No class fee is payable - but a gold coin donation is appreciated.  

All members are welcome to come along and work independently on their own projects. No tutor is present and there is no instruction. Enjoy the company of others and share a break at morning tea time, for a chat.

Normally Companion Painting sessions are offered on:

  • MONDAYS:  Companion painting from Monday 8th February 2021 from 10am - 12.00pm.

  • THURSDAYS: Companion painting on Thursday mornings from 10am to 12.30pm.

Please let Kathy Tyrrell know if you would like to come along so we can gauge numbers of those interested and schedule accordingly.  Email: [email protected] or Mobile: 0417 845 275.
