Beech Art Group is held in the Annexe Meeting Room at Beech Village Hall on Mondays from 2pm to 4pm for most of the year, with breaks during the busy holiday times.
It is run by talented local artist Sally Cox who offers helpful guidance and instruction to members in a wide range of art media. The Group is very informal, for all abilities (even beginners) and costs just £8 for each two-hour session (no membership fee).
Bring your own materials, choose your own subject or paint along with Sally, who will be there to offer advice and will do some work herself to inspire you to have a go!
Several members also belong to the Alton Art Society which organises regular demonstrations, outdoor painting days and occasional opportunities to exhibit and maybe even sell an artwork or two! In 2013 the Group followed Sally’s example and took a stall at the annual Beech Christmas Gift Fayre, and have done so each year since.
New members are welcome – for more information on dates or to sign up, e-mail Sally or call on 563421. As she says “This is really just an excuse for an ‘arty’ get together, so go on – give it a go!”
Some of Sally’s own pictures, as well as those of others in the group, are shown below.
