The Thursday Creech St Michael Art Group are a group of enthusiastic amateur artists who meet once a week in the small room of Creech St Michael Village Hall on Thursday mornings from 10am until 12 noon. They follow dates that coincide with the school terms and only pay for the meetings they attend.

At the sessions they follow their own paths of art, helping each other where possible. They believe it is good for everyone to meet up regularly with like-minded people to discuss things art-related and non art-related.

Occasionally they enjoy a visit from professional artists to demonstrate techniques and tricks of the trade.

Their meetings are very pleasant occasions in a very relaxed atmosphere, during which they hopefully hone their artistic skills and enjoy each others’ company.

The Seasons Art Class® is a brilliant way to learn new skills you will be able to enjoy forever.

All courses are designed to be fun for absolute beginners (who have never picked up a brush before), through to Improvers.

It is also a great way of meeting new friends and to have a fun experience you will always remember and cherish! It is open to all adults of all ages.
