Little Gaddesden Art Club

The aims of Little Gaddesden Art Club are for the promotion and furtherance of drawing, painting, sculpture, pottery and wood sculpture within the Parish of Little Gaddesden. Now more than half the members come from outside the village!

We hold two exhibitions a year and several club evenings with a demonstration, talk or drawing with a model. These are open meetings, and non-members are welcome for a small fee. We also hold two or three full day workshops with a tutor. Our AGM is in March and this is followed by a lunch for members and their guests. We also hold a Summer Supper in July. They are great times to meet other members and have a good meal.

We like to encourage members to join in club activities and help at events, not just exhibit their pictures.

There is also a group who meet on Monday afternoon throughout the year in the Village Hall. There is no tutor and no instruction, so people “do their own thing”. We take it in turns to make tea and we divide the cost of the hall between us. You do not have to be a member of the Club to come.

Club membership is open to all Little Gaddesden residents. People outside the parish must have their membership application form supported by two club members. You do not have to be an artist to join, we have several members who just like coming to events and are willing to help.
