Review of our latest workshops.

Clare Law – September 23rd

Clare held an excellent and successful workshop in which beginners and the more experienced learnt plenty of tips and techniques


Comments from participants

‘A great fun and very informative day with Clare, who knew you could take all day to paint a 4”by 4” picture ! I am sure everyone came away having learnt different techniques with a pallete knife and mixing and using paint to create these lovely landscapes.’

Below are a couple of photos of work produced at the workshop.

A little bit about our Society and our members…….

We are a group of enthusiastic artists who come together to take part in workshops, demonstrations and talks, as well as to exhibit and sell our works at our Annual Easter Exhibition. We also have three small groups who meet up to paint together, two groups at The Parish Room, Yealmpton and one group in The Revelstoke Room, The Village Hall, Noss Mayo.

The Society is committed to encouraging an interest in all genres of painting within the local community. We aim to include all abilities and would welcome new artists – both the young and the more mature, beginners and more experienced.
