Bollington Art Group is a thriving art group, based in Bollington near Macclesfield, Cheshire. Founded in 1964 we currently have a membership of 100 and a long waiting list*. We meet on Monday evenings in the Civic Hall and Wednesday afternoons in the Arts Centre.
We run a mainly taught programme throughout our year, which runs from September to July. Our tutors are either qualified art teachers or recognised professional artists. Generally the programme is broken down into roughly six week sessions, with a new tutor for each session. The topics might be subject based, or media based. We also hold demonstrations by local artists, to which non-members are cordially invited, and a few one day workshops, which are for members only.
Our year ends with our annual exhibition displaying the work of our very talented members.
* As of November 2016, due to the size of our waiting list we have had to close the list for now.
