If you simply want to see what we are about, enjoy exploring. We hope you find the site interesting.
If you enjoy painting and would like to develop your skills with like-minded people in a relaxed, amiable atmosphere then Deerness Art Group may be the place for you! All levels of ability are welcome, including beginners. In addition to painting with oils, watercolour and acrylics, some of our members paint on silk, practice calligraphy or embroider, so we try to be inclusive. We love to see new faces so don’t be shy, a warm welcome awaits you. Read all about us in the next few pages.
Below are some of the events coming up in the immediate future. If you feel tempted to join for a trial day, then please go to the Contact Us page.
Several people have joined us this year and we wish them a warm welcome and many happy years of painting.
