Handsworth and District Art Society

Summary
we are a Community based art group for adults. We enjoy drawing and painting in a relaxed and friendly group environment, doing our own thing and sharing handy tips and ideas with each other. No art experience is necessary - beginners and more experienced are very welcome.


Description

we meet on Wednesday afternoons 1.30 - 4pm at the Old Rectory, Handsworth - but you don't have to live in Handsworth to come: if you can get there, then you will be welcome.

The group is friendly and the setting informal: we all bring our own painting projects but when we get stuck for ideas or are unsure how to tackle something there is always someone to ask and help. we have members who have never painted before coming and those who have more experience but our aim is to enjoy getting out of the house, sharing an interest with like-minded people and having a go. A Coffee/tea break gives us chance to get to know each other better but some of us are so absorbed, we drink as we paint (20p per session for the drinks).

Come along to see how art can boost your sense of well-being, build your confidence and combat loneliness.

Our current costs are £50 for the year, payable in 2 6-monthly payments. Your first visit is free so you can come and meet us and see if you think you would like to become a member: we have some basic painting materials for anyone who wants to come but hasn't any equipment - or bring your own.
