Ide Art Group

We meet every Tuesday morning between 10 and 12 in the Village Hall and are a group of very mixed ability working in all media. There is no formal teaching although help is always available and there is always lots of encouragement as well as plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits. We have regular workshops throughout the year with various visiting professional artists who spend a full day with us so that we can watch, learn and paint. New members are sure of a very warm welcome, come and have a chat before you rush off to buy equipment as we can give advice on what you need. The cost is just £2 per session and that includes refreshments and plenty of free advice if you want it.
