Art Group

Group Leader: Karen Latham –

All are welcome to join the art group, whether you have done no art work since school or are already skilled artists. No experience is required! The group is mixed media, mixed experience and ability. We often try new things just to have a go. We all enjoy being together, often in quiet concentration fully absorbed in our individual work. It’s a very therapeutic, immensely satisfying and supportive group.

The Art Group meets on the first Tuesday of the Month starting at 10:00am and finishing 12:00 to 12:30pm.  The usual cost per session is £3.00 which pays for the venue, refreshments and also builds a fund to pay for the occasional guest tutor and life drawing sessions.  Members should bring their own materials.  (Some materials may be provided for beginners until they can acquire their own.)

Venues may vary depending on weather and subject matter. Check this web site or contact the group leader.

Resting but still creative

Published 27th September 2021

The art group members are not yet meeting together, venues are starting to re open, and confidence is building, so watch this space for up coming meetings and venues.

In the mean time there are other really good art groups locally who are taking new members.

Please continue to work at home and as u3a members submit examples of your work for the website even if you are not a member of the art group

Bracken Trust project

Published 10th June 2021

The Bracken Trust approached the u3a art group to come up with some designs that could be used as a basis for Notelets which could then be sold to raise additional funds for the Bracken Trust. Four designs where finally chosen from the work submitted and have gone into print. Thanks to all the artists who took part and to members who might buy a pack of four to have on hand for those times when a few words might be needed to be sent in the traditional way.
