rivers MEET - Art Group

Art Group

The riversMEET Art group meets every week during school term time on Thursdays. This current website is now an historical record. All future information relating to the group, after 1 September 2016, will be posted on the facebook page:

The art group takes place in a light and airy room upstairs at the riversMEET Café and Crafts and there is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for people to meet socially with others also interested in art. We order tea, coffee, etc. for mid-session from the café.

From Thursday 8 September 2016, Caroline Marshall will be taking over teaching the art group, so if you would like to join, please speak with Jo at the café or visit the new Art Class at riversMEET facebook page here. Sessions will run on Thursday between 10 am and midday, during term time.
