Have fun and meet new people while you experiment, learn, share and develop your artistic style, ability and talent.

The Burnside Painting Group actively supports and promotes artistic skill and creativity in the local community.

The Burnside Painting Group currently has some 70 active members. Becoming a member offers many benefits for a very modest annual fee.

We invite anyone aged sixteen or over, who enjoys professional art tuition and practice in the company of like-minded others, to explore our comprehensive range of tutored Short (6 weeks) Art Courses, all delivered by experienced and well-known Australian artists.

Join us in 2022. Included in your annual subscription is our popular Plein Air Group Painting activity, organised tours to the Art Gallery of South Australia and other art exhibitions, social events with guest speakers covering a wide range of creative interests, and opportunities to publicly exhibit and sell artwork at our very popular SALA Exhibition.


Our classes and workshops are run by talented and experienced tutors and are suitable for novices through to experts.


From social nights to gallery tours, we hold a range of art-based events for our members.


We are proud to present our members’ works through multiple exhibitions and open days throughout the year.
