Our Art Group is run by a full committee consisting of:
Plus we have a "heavy gang" to help set up exhibitions and we are always very grateful for their help.
Our group is very keen in supporting various charities and worthy causes in the local area. Recipients of the money we raise are decided within the group and invited to attend our Christmas party to collect their cheques. Money raised in 2014 went to
In addition we have supported many charities over the years including donating 4 shelter boxes, Boscastle disaster, Children's Hospice, the Blind, bought a weighing machine for premature babies for the local surgery, Padstow Sea Cadets, Padstow Brownies, Air Ambulance, the Padstow Lifeboat and many others.
We paint together every week on a Tuesday evening. We are a very freindly group, who under the careful eye of our Professional Tutor Wendy Parkyn, we paint in all mediums.
We meet in the Memorial Hall Padstow. Anyone visiting Cornwall on holiday who wishes to paint for a couple of hours are very welcome to join us. The evening starts at 6.30pm until 9.00pm with a break for tea or coffee half way through the evening. There is a nominal charge for joining us.
We have several workshops a year - usually run by professional artists from around Cornwall.
Mermbership is restricted due to the limited number of tables and space in the Memorial Hall. Membership is kept at 20 members and we have a large waiting list.
