At The East London Art Club, what we do is simple but powerful: we provide a friendly and welcoming space and materials for you to experiment with making art. Simple as that. And it's FREE!!! (Small and optional donation suggested of £1-£2 to cover MeetUp fees and materials). We are not an art class – there’s no particular ‘tuition’, though we do share ideas and techniques with each other. You don't need to have any experience, or even any idea what you're going to create. You just turn up and allow your natural creativity to flow - to naturally find your own style and direction. All in the supportive presence of others doing the same.

The class format includes:

* creative practice time    * quiet time for reflection

* chatting while you work!   * ‘sharing’ skills and insights 

The East London Art Club is supported by The Create Place, part of St Margaret's House. The Create Place is a community space that offers free and low cost room hire to allow people to share their artist skills, run workshops or host pop up events throughout the year.

PLEASE NOTE: you can now RSVP to any of the events 10 days before the event (but not sooner). We've done this for a similar reason as our harsh-but-fair rule about not coming having RSVPed yes, as this means that people on the waiting list can't come. On that note, just a reminder of this rule: if you don't show twice having not changed your RSVP to a no, you won't be able to come to the group any more. Sorry. Harsh but fair, we hope you agree!
