Monday Afternoon Painting Group


The first step to joining the Art Group could be a couple of taster visits to our afternoon painting group, held at the Birchfield Hall, off St John's Road, Yeovil, each Monday in term time between 1pm and 4pm.


We have found that members appreciate some flexibility to fit in with different life-styles and so we open at 1.00 pm and pack up ready to leave at 4.00 pm. You can choose when you come and go. For the session fee of £2 we include a cup of tea/coffee and a biscuit, served at around 3.00 pm by a couple of members on a rota.


We are a friendly and supportive group who welcome new members. We have occasional mini-demonstrations for, and sometimes by, members of our Monday Group. We find that new members quickly feel part of the group and develop their skills, above all we have fun together!


Outdoor Painting


We have a summer break from the end of June to the beginning of September and often arrange to meet up for a painting day in a private garden or local venue.




We offer a number of whole day workshops, (10am – 4pm), to our members each year, these give participants the opportunity to explore different media and techniques with different professional artists who enjoy sharing their skills and enthusiasm. 


Four of our workshops are less structured and allow the participants to experiment and explore different ways of working, with the support and encouragement of an experienced art tutor, who facilitates these sessions.


 Typically we offer 12 -15 places on a “first come, first served” basis.


All workshops are held in the Birchfield Hall, Yeovil, current cost is £20.00 for the day and members can obtain application forms from the Programme Secretary.
