Art & Drawing groups



Art group - Monday morning





We are a small group of rather laid back amateur artists with a membership of about ten.  Classmates mainly do their own thing and receive non-threatening advice from more experienced colleagues. 


Daphne Ellis Art Groups


There are 2 Daphne Ellis Art groups run by the same group leader.  One meets twice a month on Thursdays and the other meets weekly on Fridays


The Drawing Groups

There are 2 drawing groups run by the same group leader
The first group meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month in the Upper Room, Northam.  They have been meeting for several years and over this time individual members have explored and developed many basic skills in drawing and they are now confidently applying these skills to their own work.  The group feels strongly that drawing is the bedrock of most artwork and their emphasis on under-drawing for painting for example. is evident in their work.

The organisation of each session allows time for group members to explore different approaches which may be new to them and to apply these, where appropriate, to their own work.  The group is now confidently organising its own exhibitions every other year and some members are successfully getting their work accepted into other local open art exhibitions.





The second group has started more recently and meets on the first and third Thursdays of each month.
