Art Class

Fridays, 9:30 am – 11:30 am or 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Bring your own supplies – any medium (oil, acrylic, watercolour) – and a qualified teacher will give instruction on techniques. There is also sketching and drawing.  This class has become so popular that we now offer two classes on Fridays. Register for your preferred time.   Membership required.  $2.00 to attend.

On the last Friday of the month from 9:30 to 10:30 am, we have an Art Critique of all artwork created by the members of the group–these pieces are discussed by the Art instructor and the class.  The work is original, interesting and creative.

Then at 11:00 am, we have an Arts inspired presentation. Each presentation will be on a different topic, whether that be photography, painting, different mediums, landscapes, experiences, travel. If you would like to join in, you do not have to be a member and you pay $2.00 to attend.
