Event Details

Shaftesbury Arts Centre Art Group is a small practical group based at the SAC, meeting at 2pm on Monday afternoons in the Phoenix Room to enjoy painting. We welcome all levels of skill in all mediums.

During the year we have tutors in all mediums and aspects of painting. We have an exhibition once a year in the SAC Gallery and opportunities to join other exhibitions in the gallery at certain times of the year.

Our Annual Exhibition will be held on Wednesday 20th to Tuesday 26th March 2024.
