We are a friendly group who are lucky enough to have a local artist on hand to inspire and to teach.
We not only like to paint but to explore and experiment with various media and techniques.
Please have a look at some of our creations by clicking on the links below.
The art group, with Mel as our resident artist and tutor, have had a very successful time at the Heald Green Show. In the Oil/Acrylic Painting category Kelvin Vann came first and Shiela Dawes came second. The Beginners Paintings category saw Pauline Mullarkey take first and third prize. Linda Vann received first prize for her collage work in the Handicraft section. Glenys Steedman came second in the Mixed Media category and Pat Pembridge came second for her silk painting and embroidery in the Any Other Handicraft Item category. As can be seen the art group cover a wide range of media and techniques. Well done to Mel and the art group!
This month we were able to have our first art session en plein air (outside.) We were lucky enough to have Vera very kindly open her beautiful Cheadle Hulme garden for the group, with its wide variety of plants and ornamental features to inspire us. We had a thoroughly enjoyable morning painting, helped by weather that was just right and delicious home baked cakes.
During August 2017 members of the Art Group had the opportunity of joining a collage course run by local artist, Barbara Boswell. This proved to be highly successful. The group learnt how to handle different media and all were amazed at the variety of work that was produced. Here is a small selection, some of which are not yet framed. T
December 2019 Report: View
The art group under the guidance of Mel, our resident local artist, has gone from strength to strength this year, so much so that we've had to form a second group, again under Mel's direction, which operates in Cheadle Hulme. This means we have had some movement from members who changed to their nearest group, which has now given both groups a few spaces.
This year we have covered a variety of topics and media as well as having our first 'en plein air' session in a beautiful local garden. Another highlight was a tutoring session from artist Stan Brookfield whose speciality is painting animals and birds. He won an international competition for his work, which is absolutely stunning.
The group had several successes with work entered in the Heald Green Show, we had three first prizes and several second prizes much to the delight of all, especially Mel.
