Art Workshops and Demonstrations - Amersham Art Group

Our programme includes a mixture of workshops and demonstrations, based in Amersham's Community Center (directions / map.

The workshops are either a choice of your own subject, or lead by either a professional or semi professional artist.

Demonstrations are by professional or semi professional artists in various mediums. The demonstrator usually takes a picture from start to end - or at least as far as they can in the 2 hours available. This is usually a two way dialog as those attending are welcome to ask questions whilst the demonstrator creates a picture.

You are welcome to attend any of the meetings, whatever your experience or medium, even if you are not a member (there is a £4 entrance fee for non-members, members are free).

All meetings start at 7:30pm in The Lounge, Amersham Community Centre and run for approximately 2 hours; we break for tea at approximately 8:30pm. Click here for a map to locate Amersham Community Centre.

If you would like to join us, then it would be great to see you - please just drop me a line to say you will be coming.

As with all of our workshops, please do bring your own art materials and subject material as we do not supply any. If you would like guidance on what to bring, then do let us know.
