This art group meets weekly in the Catholic hall, Swanage, during the winter and enjoys a full programme of outdoor meets during the summer. All abilities are welcome to follow their own inclinations. We have 6 workshops per year held by a local art tutor (Sharon James from L’Artishe). We also have life drawing and portrait sessions.
Summer sketch books, portfolios, cards and prints are exhibited at 2 coffee mornings each year where some items are for sale. Artists are also at work during these events.
Original paintings, prints, cards, crafts and books illustrated by our artists are available to purchase in our annual summer exhibition.
The next exhibition will be 15th to 23nd July 2017 at the Catholic Church Hall, Swanage.
Rex Neate and Phillis Mapley, who trained at the Slade, were local enthusiasts who set up the
Studio Workshop many years ago.
Current annual subscription is £35 in addition to the £10 IOPAC membership fee.
