Welcome to 2023

HAPPY NEW YEAR and THANK YOU to everyone for your continued support for M&C during 2022, attending sessions or painting along at home.


We will finance M&C the same way as last year, with an annual subscription of £75 to cover the hall hire fee for 2023. Alternatively, equal payments of £25 will be due 3 times a year in January, May and September. If you choose to pay in instalments you are committing to pay for the whole year. Without this support we will sadly not be able to raise enough funds to hire the hall. Steve has already emailed everyone with details of how to pay by bank transfer, cheque or cash.  Please pay promptly as this saves members being emailed and phoned to be reminded to pay.

If you no longer wish to be a member any more then please email Steve asap so you don’t continue to receive emails from us.

If you have any friends or family members who would like to join us then please show them this blog so they can see what we draw and paint at the sessions. If they want to join then please pass their details on to Steve. 

Please pay your membership fee by the end of January to continue to be a member of the art group.  Thank you! :o)


Our sessions will continue to be on the second Wednesday and the fourth Saturday of the month, except for the January sessions being a week earlier than usual because of the hall already being booked. Session ideas will be posted monthly at the beginning of that month.

You don’t have to paint the suggested ideas, you’re welcome to come along and paint anything you want to!

Free tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided at all sessions, so if you just want to come and chat with your art friends then that’s fine too.


Workshops will have the usual ‘first come, first served’ policy of putting your name down, with an additional amount to pay to cover the tutor’s fee. If more artists wish to attend the session than the tutor has room for, we’ll have a waiting list and you have a chance of getting a place as members sometimes pull out at the last minute. 

Even if you don’t want to attend a workshop you will have already paid for the hall hire in your subs. You are therefore welcome to sit and paint quietly at the kitchen end of the hall, whilst the workshop session takes place at the window end of the hall.

Here are the session dates for 2023. 

Please print them out or write them in your diary or calendar. Some months have 5 Saturdays but we meet on the 4th one.

Please note that our Open Day is on Saturday 25th November.

  1. Thanks Tracy.

    Happy New Year to everyone

    I have paid my subs by BACS, but won’t be with you on Wednesday. I got a very faint 2nd line on my covid test this morning – Terry’s test on Friday was thick and black right immediately but mine had been negative for a couple of days until now. We are both feeling better today, more energy and less coughing. So far it really has been just like a head cold.
