The North of England Art Club 


The Club has a light and airy painting studio and a second studio for drawing and watercolours. The main studio is used for regular painting sessions with a model:

Portrait Group, Mondays, 13.00 - 16.00

Life Group, Tuesdays 11.00 - 14.30

Life Group, Wednesdays 11:00-14:30

The Life Group also meets on one Saturday each month. 11:00-4:00

The studio is available at other times, and all day on Thursdays and Fridays for independent painting. The Thursday group provides a friendly, supportive atmosphere for exploring your own concepts and choice of medium.

There is a monthly Thursday lunchtime "presentation" by a club member introducing a diverse range of interests. See "Monthly Presentations" this is followed-up by a bi-monthly competition for members on an associated subject. See "competition feedback"

The club has started a new series of "tutorials" which will be small group sessions led by a club member. See "programme"

The Club arranges occasional Saturday workshops and demonstrations. 

Small extra charges apply for workshops and to cover the cost of models in the Portrait and Life Groups.

 Members arrange informal en-plein air painting sessions, visits to exhibitions, and small groups get together for painting holidays or to attend short courses.

The Club holds at least one selling exhibition each year and members participate in other events throughout the region.
