Art classes, Demonstrations and Exhibitions
We host a programme of art classes and an annual exhibition of full members' work.
The classes and workshops are open to all. These events cover a wide range of media and subjects, and are held from September through to May. The art classes are held weekly on Wednesday mornings at Heswall Hall and workshops are held at the British Legion, Pensby Road, Heswall each month from September to May.
Our annual exhibition, held in July/August, is an opportunity for all full members to exhibit and sell their work.
The following are informal outdoor art meetings. All are welcome, members and non members. There isn't a fee but bring a drink, a chair and your lunch.

The Workshops are held at The British Legion, 78 Pensby Road, Heswall, CH60 7RF. They run from 10am – 4pm. The cost is expected to be about £10 for members and £12 for non-members (inclusive of hot drinks and biscuits all day), sometimes a lesser fee applies for the morning demonstration only. We advise that you bring a packed lunch. Everybody is welcome.

The classes provide an opportunity to work with a tutor and gather new ideas and to practice your art and to meet other artists in a convivial atmosphere. Any classes without tutors are a continuation of the previous week's class allowing members time to continue with the topic.
The classes are held most Wednesdays in Heswall Hall, Telegraph Road, Heswall from 9.30 -12.00. The cost is £3.50 including drinks and biscuits. Everybody is welcome.
