Burnside Painting Group
social nights

Social nights are held on specific Wednesday evenings, usually between 7.30pm to 9.30pm. Both members and non-members are welcome to attend. 

Enjoy some supper (members are welcome to bring along a plate of food to share), whilst chatting to others. Hear our guest speakers talk about their work and what inspires them, or see a demonstration of their painting or drawing technique. It’s an opportunity to pick up new tips and tricks and ask any questions you have.

You are invited to show your recent works at our social nights, too. Members are invited to bring along their recent artworks to display.

Venue: The Hall, 67 Bridge Street, Kensington (off Kensington Road) 

Approximately 40 people attended our end-of-year event on Wednesday 30 November 2022. Guest speaker, accomplished artist Lise Temple, showed many stunning slides of her work and gave us insight into the development of her painting career, talking about how she sets up her palette and the use of technology in developing up her work. She also discussed how she markets her work, including the use of social media. Afterwards, guests mingled and enjoyed the plentiful supper. Thanks to all who contributed, with special thanks to Thelma Harvey for organising this thoroughly enjoyable event. 😊.
