The Art Group has now restarted operating in line with Government and Northumberland County Council guidance .
We are a sociable group of enthusiastic leisure painters who enjoy the pleasure of painting and a good chat. Halfway through the session we have a tea/coffee break discussing everything under the sun. Once a term we aim to have an established artist to run a workshop with us. The terms are from January to May and from September to December. Depending on demand, we also have a summer term. We also arrange an exhibition for the general public once or twice a year.
Meetings: Mondays 9am to 12pm.
Fee: We pay £35 each per term

A. The hall services and facilities comply with current guidelines and all members are expected to do so. The hall will reopen in September 2020
Q. I’m a beginner, how will I fit in?
A. The group is very diverse and all sorts of media are used by the different members. We’re very sociable, supportive and learn from each other. We have art teachers and people who were new to art before they joined, so everyone is welcome.
