The Knowle Art Group was formed in 1992 by ex-evening class students. Over the years it has attracted other amateur artists to join the group for weekly meetings and workshops.  We are a friendly group with mixed abilities, developing our skills in the company of each other.  Watercolour, pastels and pencil media are used at the moment but we look forward to new members who use other media., so that we can further our skills and gain experience in terms of subject matter and techniques.


Meetings are  every Tuesday through the month except for bank holidays, etc.  See the calendar for more details.


At regular times during the year we hold various "special" events including demonstrations by professional artists, workshops & outdoor (plein air)sketching and painting evenings at local venues. See the events page for more details.


If you are a beginner, want to "brush up" on old skills or just need a little motivation, you would be very welcome to join us in our club evenings where we each work at our own pace and inclination. Please note there is no "tutor" but we all help each other to learn and progress. Read about some of the benefits of belonging to a group like this.


Remember, there is an artist in all of us, so for further information about the group please contact us, using the contact form .


Favourite and useful links to other sites can be found on the external links page I especially recommend the links to video tutorials from You Tube - go on have a look.

Tuesday evening meetings

We are a hand-on painting group and Tuesday evenings are usually used for painting, each member will provide his/her own reference material and "do their own thing". Some of the members attend other classes and find that these evenings can simply give them time to complete work started in their class. Others find the discipline of regular evenings enables them to find time to paint when otherwise there are too many distractions at home.

This is Paul who often prefers to work in oils, he is a keen member of the group and also takes classes in the local area to advance his skills and techniques in this medium.

Owen, has recently left the group having moved to a new location which is too far away to travel but he is still with us in spirit. Here he is concentrating on a portrait in pastels. Not his usual medium, he is more normally seen with water colours.
