We meet Mondays 9 till 12 in the Village Hall and tend to paint in watercolours, acrylics and pastels. The cost is £30 per term (Sept-Dec) and (Jan –April). We are a sociable group of enthusiastic leisure painters who enjoy the pleasure of painting and a good chat. The new term starts on Monday 8th January 2018.
