The Club provides a friendly atmosphere where you can develop your drawing & painting skills and talk to others who enjoy wrestling with a brush, pen, pastel or pencil. The Club has currently about 45 Members and is a mix of professionals, amateurs and complete beginners. 

We hold weekly meetings throughout the year meeting on Monday evenings at Smisby Village Hall from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. There is a day time meeting too, on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month from 9.30am to 12.00. The Club is closed on Bank Holidays and closes for about 4 weeks in July/August except for the Wednesday morning sessions which continue throughout the year. The programme includes Demonstrations by professional artists, Exhibitions, Social events, Workshops and Organised activities. Weather allowing, there is also a group of members who meet for "Plein Air" sessions.
