STAFFORD ART GROUP
Was founded in 1963 and has a membership of over 100. It is open to anyone interested in the visual arts and provides an opportunity to pursue art as a recreation with a relaxed and friendly Group of fellow artists.
It is NOT, however, a teaching Group. It is essentially a Group of artists who get together to paint and exhibit their work. All levels of attainment are catered for and both beginners and more experienced artists are welcome.
Most meetings consist of practical painting sessions where members are encouraged to pursue their art using whatever medium they wish. In addition, throughout the year, at approximately monthly intervals, there are painting demonstrations, talks and slide shows by visiting professional artists.
The Group meets at Littleworth Community Centre, St Thomas' Street, Stafford, ST16 3UU from September to June:
Tuesday afternoons from 2 until 4 p.m.
Friday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served during a mid-session break, giving an opportunity to view other members' work.
The current annual subscription (2011/2012) is £25 per person which entitles members to attend both weekly meetings and exhibit with the Group.
If you would like more information about the Group, or would like to join, you are welcome to contact the Hon Secretary - or come along to one of our meetings to see for yourself.

The Group has built up an extensive video library, in order to help members to learn and understand various aspects of painting and drawing in a variety of media.
Once a year a selected exhibition is held at which presentations are made. This is held at the Ancient High House.
Twice a year, the Group has a one day exhibition in the Oddfellows hall in Stafford, where there is no selection process.
The Group is also always looking out for other suitable exhibition venues.
