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 longish waiting list*. We meet on Monday evenings in the Civic Hall and Wednesday afternoons in the Arts Centre.
We run tutor-led programmes throughout our year, which runs from September to July.
Our tutors are mostly either qualified art teachers or recognised professional artists. Generally the programme is broken down into roughly six week courses with a new tutor for each course. The topics might be subject based, or media based.
We also hold demonstrations by local artists to which non-members are cordially invited, and one day workshops, which are for members only.
We expect members to sign up for a complete course, which might be 3, 4, or more sessions. If you can’t attend one of the sessions, then you need to understand that we expect you to pay for all the sessions, as we still have to pay for the room and the tutors. Our year ends with our annual exhibition displaying the work of our very talented members.
* 26 January 2020 - our waiting list is now open once again. Please contact our membership secretary, Jan, at the email on the Contacts page
