Hepworth Art Club began as a very small seed of an idea in June 2010. It started with half a dozen people. We have grown!
The club is run on an informal basis in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. It is for people who share an interest in art and painting – no matter how experienced or inexperienced. We meet every Monday from 10.00 am – 3.00 pm at Hepworth Pavilion, Church Lane. Being able to have time and space to discover our hidden talents is a wonderful way to start the week! The programme is planned during our quarterly review sessions and the end result usually means we have at least one guest tutor (funds permitting), an occasional tuitional DVD and a special subject/different art media each Monday.

Where did the year go? Now in the art club’s last quarter of the year, a lot has happened. A few of us have had personal changes and challenges and have been supported throughout by thoughtful, sensitive and supportive group members. On a personal note, each and every person (including other friends in Hepworth) has […]
After all the festive action of December, on 7th January, the art club resumed. We had a gentle morning easing ourselves back into painting mode. It didn’t take long though (after a good deal of catching up with news), before we resumed where we had left off! At the time of writing, we have painted […]
Despite a rainy Saturday, we had over a hundred visitors to our Art Exhibition. Sunday was sunnier and many more visitors arrived from near and far to view our year’s artwork. A very big thank you to all our visitors for making it so worthwhile. Thank you also to art club members and their partners/spouses […]
On the first Monday in August our topic was ‘Stunning Sunsets and Beautiful Skies’ and there were plenty of them! Other challenges during August included Windmills and Watermills and a cryptic ‘Feeling Blue’ completed our August sessions. Quite a variety of topics to keep us on our toes! In September we were delighted to welcome […]
Full of variety, we have all enjoyed our ‘Painting Mondays’ during this wonderful summer weather. Earlier on we were delighted to welcome Catherine Bremner who is a very talented local artist. Catherine provided a tutorial on painting clouds and foregrounds. Very much inspired, we have invited her back! Our sessions have also included Birds of […]
Since our last news update a lot has happened. Not sure why this should sound funny but after painting fire during the second session in January, the following Monday we were painting all things Scottish! In our own creative way, we celebrated Burns Night by painting Dancers and Bagpipes and the occasional thistle and Highland […]
We completed our year on a high note with an interesting December session where we painted each other! I hasten to add – on paper. There might have been some interesting reactions had we all emerged multi-coloured! An art Christmas Quiz followed by a buffet lunch sent us all on our way in festive mood. […]
We chose a blustery weekend for an art exhibition! Despite a few hiccups, which hopefully nobody noticed, we had an enjoyable two days. Our first ‘THANK YOU’ goes to all our visitors – from near and far. You make all the hard work that goes into putting on an exhibition so worthwhile. As you will […]
