Dunkeswell Art Group

Dunkeswell Art Club has restarted meeting in the old Village Hall (6th July 2021).  It meets every other Tuesday from 2 – 4 pm and would welcome anyone who would like to come along.  The Art Club is informal, you take along your own art supplies (and a drink and snack for the tea break).  The group is of mixed ability and experience and uses a variety of media, there is no tutor but members are happy to give advice & tips if needed.  Even if you just enjoy colouring in a preprinted picture, but can’t find the time at home, you can still join the group for two hours of mindful ‘art time’.  The price of each session depends on the number of attendees (to cover the cost of the hall) but the most you would pay for a session would be £4.  The Art Club is offering anyone who would like to try out an afternoon of art a free first session!

Please email Lucy at lucyjcdurman@gmail.com or telephone Lorraine on 01823 681549 for further information and to book your seat.
