Minety Art Club


What is the Minety Art Club?

Minety Art Club was formed in October 2006. We are simply a group of villagers from Minety and the surrounding area who like to paint and draw. We are a friendly group of mixed artistic talent and welcome new members of all abilities including beginners and folk who just want to dabble while enjoying good company.

Anyone interested in joining us, whatever your artistic ability, please contact David Brown on 01666 860 846. We meet between 10:00 am and 12:00 every Tuesday in the Village Hall Committee Room (at the back of the Village Hall).

Membership is by annual subscription of £10:00 with a weekly session fee or £2:00 each, which is payable only on attendance. During our Tuesday sessions we do our own work and give each other help and advice if wanted. All artist mediums are present in the group: watercolour, oils, acrylic, pastel, pen-and-wash, multi-media etc. and we are always ready to try something new.

We periodically pay professional artists to come and demonstrate their particular techniques and guide us. Attendance at these sessions is optional and requires a nominal per-person fee to cover tuition and materials. We also organise for ourselves art-orientated outings, including trips to London galleries and we socialise as a group with the Tuesday sessions in each others’ gardens during July and August (weather permitting), plus an annual BBQ and occasional pub meals.

We have an annual exhibition and sale of work where we show off our efforts of the past year and hopefully make some sales to help fund this most enjoyable past-time. We also have samples of our work for sale in the Vale of the White Horse pub and occasionally other venues too.
