Artist Jean Holt runs the Whalley Art Group. The group has two popular and happy weekly painting classes, on Monday night and Wednesday morning, both at Whalley’s Old Grammar School. It is a lively and popular group for adventurous beginners and intermediates who find themselves ‘stuck in a rut’.

Students are encouraged to draw and paint all kinds of pictures, in all media and all sizes including acrylics, oils, watercolours, pastels, charcoal, pen and wash, mixed media and digital. This class aims to improve your skills, learn new ones and experiment with painting / drawing styles. All welcome. £8 per class.
