Painting for Pleasure

Explore painting

The Painting for Pleasure group, first established over ten years ago and originally based in Dobcross, now meets every Tuesday at Kilngreen Sunday School, Diggle.

There is a nucleus of around a dozen members, mostly from the Saddleworth area, but also from Shaw, Tameside and Marsden.

Each person is encouraged to develop his or her own style of painting and to explore different media including watercolour, oil, acrylic and pastel.

New members from beginners to the more experienced are always made welcome.

The tutor is Sheila Dewsbury, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a member of Manchester Academy of Fine Arts.
