May 2023 (as seen in Hagley Village News)

It seems unbelievable that it could be May already but here it is!

April will have seen the second of our fabulous abstract workshops with Kinver based artist Marie Roberts and an Easter Monday watercolour demostration from John Maule Ffinch.

We also had several of our members exhibiting at Himley Hall’s recent Art and Artisan Food Festival.

May will see another oil artist Dianne Marshall with another favourite, animals

At our members’ request we are introducing more practical sessions as well as professional demostrators and kicked this off with our first en plein session at Trinity Farm. It was cold, but there were still some brave souls there. Hopefully more at the next one.

This is going to be a feature, the last Saturday of the month, and possibly specific sketching opportunities on demonstration evenings: times and venues will be advertised on our Facebook page

Remember new members are always welcome

Contact us at or turn up at Hagley Community Centre 2nd Monday of every month 7.30 start. (£5 guest fee) If you love all things arty you won’t regret it

Why not join at £25 per year and a small entrance fee, we are incredible value without compromising on the calibre of visiting artists.-
