"feeling creative? - come along, try your hand and learn new skills and painting techniques"

in a friendly, social environment with artists of all ages and levels of ability


We have various activities to encourage our members to try new subjects and techniques and take on the challenge of trying to win a competition, all voted for by fellow members at the meetings. Great fun but also very rewarding to be recognised and encouraged by fellow art enthusiasts. See gallery for all competition winners.


Guest speakers demonstrate new techniques and styles in a range of materials. Click this link to see demos enjoyed over many years at Lodge Artists.
