Now that the milder days are with us, why not consider improving your emotional wellbeing?  Art, whether you are an eager beginner, enthusiastic dabbler or consummate professional, is an activity which is always therapeutic and relaxing.

Oundle Art Group began many years ago when a few friends with a shared enjoyment of sketching and painting thought it would be fun if they ‘dabbled’ together.  The group has expanded over time from around the region, but at its heart is the original shared enjoyment of spending time with like-minded people and encouraging each other to develop their creative interest.

Sessions are held most Thursday afternoons during the year, in the winter months at Tansor Village Hall from 1.45pm to 3.45pm.  Much of the summer weeks are spent meeting in local villages, for a practice in outdoor sketching and painting.  Sometimes there is a visiting tutor to guide the session, and at other times it is a simple getting together to complete an already started piece of work. 

The only qualification for being a group member is that you enjoy art.  Absolute beginners, eager improvers or competent, exhibiting painters - everyone is welcome!  Enthusiasm is far more essential, and a desire to improve and explore.

There is a modest annual subscription payable and an affordable meeting fee that varies according to the session itinerary. 

Chairperson Jane Sanders will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and anyone is welcome to simply drop into an art session as a visitor.  So if you have ever toyed with the idea of picking up a pencil or paintbrush, then 2018 is the perfect time to do it.

Oundle Art Group will be holding its ‘Annual Exhibition’ in the superb surroundings of St Peter’s Church, Oundle, with a wonderful display of both contemporary and more traditional paintings, showcasing a rich variety of the members’ work.

The show will be open from Saturday 12th May until Friday 18th May, between 10am and 4pm daily, and from 12.30pm on Sunday.  Admission is free and all visitors are most welcome.
