This group is open to all artists, illustrators, animators, cartoonists and Graphic artists, professional or amateur, who would like to share the experience of drawing and painting from life.

Any member can make suggestions or host an event, so that we have a range of activities to suit everyone.

When we are working indoors - please bring along 'clean materials' that won't leave a mess behind!

Useful to have a pub or cafe nearby, so that we can have a sociable time too and get inspired by exchanging sketchbooks (not compulsory for the very shy!)
