Weekly Meetings

Meetings are very informal but once a month we have a set subject which members have an option to join in with if they wish. Through the year we also invite professional and amateur artists to give demonstrations to the group. Non members and members of other local art groups are able to attend for the standard nightly fee of £1.50.

We meet on Thursday evenings from 7.00pm until 9.00pm in the community area at Jubilee Court, West Paddock, Leyland. PR25 1JJ. All art mediums are represented apart from oils due to residual smells. There is no subscription fee. You pay only on the evenings you attend. Not charging an annual subscription still allows those who have to watch their outgoings a little more closely the opportunity to visit and enjoy the group as they feel able to. Some people visit every week, some only once a month, the choice is yours. All we charge is £1.50 per session which includes refreshments.
