Sefton art group's spring exhibition, held at Lydiate parish hall, Merseyside

We have at least two exhibitions each year. This gives members an opportunity to prepare paintings, display them and hopefully start to enjoy selling their work! Our last one was at Lydiate parish hall, May 2019


Every one can learn art!

Many people believe that to take up art you have to be born
with a natural talent...! Not true...
You can be taught the basics of art, and much more.... Yes, you can be taught drawing, art, painting.
In the same way you'd learn other things in life:
how to drive, ride a bike, bake a cake. All you need to learn art is to have nothing more than the desire to want to do it!





Art workshops

Regular daily workshops for anyone wanting to learn new skills.

These varied art workshops offer: watercolour, pen & ink, creative drawing, working semi-abstract, taster life drawing sessions.




Visits to major exhibitions

Some of our members on a visit to Tate Liverpool to view the summer exhibition

Last September members visited the John Moores painting prize exhibition at the Walker art gallery, Liverpool. A unique opportunity to see 'modern art' up close, and hopefully inspire members to re-think how they produce art, or to trigger ideas of their own.



Painting out of doors

Members working outside, Lydiate, Merseyside

When the weather allows, the members on the weekly classes, also the Saturday class, work out of doors. Each venue allows us this opportunity, whether in Southport, Lydiate and Hightown. Artists enjoy this experience as it allows you to work directly from the subject, much better than relying on a photograph!

Drawing for everyone

Drawing for everyone is over 3 consecutive Saturdays, but currently suspended due to the coronavirus situation.
This class is designed for anyone wanting to draw and eventually paint. Or those who paint but feel that the drawing part lets them down. You will start with how to measure a subject and draw it in proportion, using the thumb-and-pencil method. You will also use charcoal to develop skills in applying tonal (shading) values. Also, how to use the 'grid system'. This is especially useful if drawing up a complex subject, or a portrait.
This class is now done online, via zoom. More information, contact me...
