Do you like painting? are you a beginner, or more advanced? We look forward to meeting you.

The Art Group began as a result of popular demand in February 1999 when a few enthusiasts tried a six months trial holding one Art Session a week. Very quickly we became a Section of the Brookdale Club and today we have over 70 members meeting twice a week on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.

The Art Group is a club rather than a class ranging from beginners to professionals and we all enjoy learning from each other. Watercolour is our main media but many members also use acrylics, pastels, pen and wash, and water based oils.

New members are always welcome and if you need inspiration, we have books in our library and many instructional DVDs for you to watch.

To join the Art Section it is first necessary to become a member of the Brookdale Club. The Art Section’s annual subscription is £4 and we pay £2 each session we attend to cover the room rent and to cover the cost of a cup of tea/coffee. We break for Easter, Christmas and summer holidays.

Our annual programme includes:-

  • Weekly sessions
    Workshops by professional artists.
    Visits to Major art galleries.
    Location painting challenges, ‘en – plein – air’.
    Plus an annual social event
