Tutorials on YouTube

Local artist Stewart Beckett had put a series of paint along tutorials on You ‘tube.  You can access them through this link:

Tutorials on Television

Another event coming up, this time on BBC Four Television is ‘Life Drawing Live’ on Tuesday 12 May at 8pm.

We need your paintings to refresh the gallery on our website

If you have a finished painting or drawing that you would like us to put on our website online gallery please email a photograph of your painting to me at

Would you like to join with other members on a weekly or by-weekly painting challenge

One of our members has suggested that it would be nice if the Tuesday painters, or other groups of painters could get together and each create a painting of a subject and again share this online either through our website or Facebook page.  If you’d like to do this why not get a group together and email me the finished results.
