Brief History of the original village group

In 1992 a small painting group was formed and met in the Village School on Friday evenings. This was mainly a self-help group with the occasional visiting tutor. In September 2000 the group decided to expand by becoming a daytime group. This proved a popular decision with a new membership of 25 from Dry Drayton and surrounding villages and a waiting list for places. A Committee was formed and the group has since gone from strength to strength.

Where and When?

The group meets on Tuesday mornings in the Village Hall, Dry Drayton from 9.30 a.m to 12.30 p.m.

What goes on?

As an example, various tutors have demonstrated and encouraged members in watercolour, acrylic, life drawing and portrait painting. Occasional day schools are held either in the Village Hall or School at a small extra charge to members. Coach outings to various exhibitions and events are arranged and non-members are welcome to join these.

Art Exhibition

The annual Art Exhibition usually takes place during Feast Week and is well attended.

Below are some pictures from past exhibitions (Photos by Rob Howard).
