What we do

The second Art group now has the name Artistic Licence -we hope this conveys our inclusive ethos.

Our regular membership is about 10, so we have room for a few more. Between us, we use a wide renge of media and are happy to show other group members who would like to try a different medium.

Phone Bern Haigh for more information.

You can see examples of the group's work on the Art Gallery page.


November 2018

Artistic Licence now meets at the new venue in Castle Street, where we have the advantage of 'on site' parking.  We have a current group of regular members but we are able to take a few more new people.

Our group continues to enjoy a wide range of artistic styles using many different media.  These include painting and sketching in watercolour, oils and acrylic, pen and ink, pastels, coloured and graphite pencils and also digital art.  We are a relaxed and friendly group and any form of art is encouraged, so new members would be made most welcome.

Recently some of our group went on an organised visit to the Florence Art Centre in Egremont, the site of the disused mine where haematite, an important ore of iron was extracted and ground to a red pigment for artists use.  We had an opportunity to try the red (from haematite), yellow (from sandstone) and grey (from slate) pastels for ourselves.  It was a most enjoyable and interesting day.

Anyone interested in joining our group please contact either of the co-ordinators above.


August 2018

Next Meetings - 7 Sep - 21 Dec

Please note that we are relocating to Castle Street in September.

There are still vacancies for  anyone who would enjoy expressing themselves in any medium in the company of a like-minded supportive group.

May 2018

Our Artistic Licence Group is flourishing and has had some more members joining recently. The work produced is excellent and encompasses a variety of different mediums and styles. Occasionally group sessions are encouraged but there is no compulsion to join in. Everybody can express themselves as they wish. We support and help each other as required and enjoy the social aspect of like-minded companionship.

For information contact the co-ordinators.
