With a maximum of ten members this is a small, friendly group where everyone can share ideas and opinions.

Members vary widely in their particular areas of interest and their existing knowledge of art, which our programme aims to reflect.

The group is suitable for complete beginners, so we cover some well-known, important artists and styles. Some topics are linked to current exhibitions.
