Members may attend either or both sessions - Monday mornings and/or Wednesday evenings, but you must be a member to attend our classes and most of our workshops.

Companion painting:  Those not doing a class are welcome to attend and paint in the side hall and enjoy the companionship of other members as they work on their own projects, particularly on Monday mornings from 10.00 to 12.30pm.

Tables and some easels are available for you to use. You can also borrow books from our Art Library.
