rivers MEET - Art Group

Art Group

The riversMEET Art group meets regularly during school term time. Please note that this current website (not optimised for mobile devices) is now only an historical record of when Richard Gentle taught the class. All current information relating to the group is posted on the facebook page, Caroline Marshall Art Work & Tuition:

Visit the current Art Class at riversMEET facebook page here

The art group takes place in a light and airy room, upstairs at the riversMEET Café and Crafts, and there is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for people to meet socially with other aspiring artists.

From Thursday 8 September 2016, Caroline Marshall took over teaching the art group and has subsequently expanded the group into more sessions, together with very popular school holiday art classes for kids.

So if you would like to join, please speak with Jo at the café or visit the Art Class at riversMEET facebook page here. For full information on session availability and times, please ask via the facebook group.

You can view another version of Hand of Light here. It is mobile friendly and contains the pages for St Oswald's Church.
