What we're about

We are a group of artists, ranging from beginners through to experienced, who meet Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of each week in our studio at Sherwood, to paint and draw together in untutored workshops. There is no need to book - just come along a little before 10 am on your chosen day/s and ask for the convenor. He or she will be delighted to help you settle in. Anyone who loves to paint and/or draw is very welcome!
There are no competitions or comparisons, just a shared love of drawing and painting, learning from, and encouraging each other! Free standing easels, tables, backing boards and seating are provided, as well as morning tea refreshments. The studio has air-conditioning/heating and great lighting too.
On Monday, Thursday and Friday models are provided, as either portrait or life studies. Tuesday is free range with painting and drawing on your own projects, plus discussion!

Come along and try the workshops - we would love to meet you! You can also check us out on our website http://www.hdg-artists.com and our facebook page The Half Dozen Group of Artists. Here is a list of what's happening on each day, and the relevant fees:
