Calling All Budding Van Goghs


The Macarthur Art Group is a welcoming and friendly group of people who enjoy all forms of fine art, water colour, acrylic and oils, pastels, drawing and sketching.

The local group meets monthly in the Ironbark Room, upstairs at the Narellan Library, from 11:00am until 12:00pm. The meeting is usually followed by either a sketch group or a demonstration.

There is an annual fee of $25 per person or $40 per couple. The first visit is complimentary.

New members are warmly welcomed, no matter whether they are complete beginners or very experienced artists.

The group offers so much help and advice to those who are wanting to develop or begin their journey into art, either as a hobby or at a more professional level.

Apart from their monthly meetings and follow up activities, there are art classes run by their experienced artists, art displays where work can be purchased, and many exhibitions run throughout the year.

Following their meeting on 30th November, they are having a demonstration by popular artist Diana Garth, who will be working with water soluble oils (involving no use of turps). In the new year, they are planning several local exhibitions – including Mount Annan Shopping Centre, Narellan Town Centre and the Camden Library. There will also be more demonstrations at their monthly meetings throughout the year.
