Demonstration & Monthly Club Meeting
Once each month except January and December we hold
a monthly meeting, usually on the third Saturday of the month, for all to meet with their fellow artists, enjoy guest
speakers and demonstrations, and show and critique our work, etc.
Don't forget to support the "Trading Table" where
donated art magazines and books will be available at bargain prices. Each month we hope to
have donated art magazines and books that folk would like to donate to help
raise money to go toward the cost of holding our popular demonstrations.
The venue is our clubrooms in the Nunawading
Community Centre, Silver Grove, Nunawading, Victoria, Australia.
