About Us
The Art Appreciation class has been established for over 10 years and comprises a lively and friendly group with a spread of artistic knowledge from beginner to near expert – plus a lot in-between! So no great artistic knowledge or skill is necessary – just a liking and interest in Art in its many and varied formats and representations.

Most weeks we have a speaker from within the group or from an outside source and we cover a wide variety of topics from well known artists or styles to fairly obscure ones! This is combined with talks on themes such as architecture, stained glass, pottery, sculpture and so on.

We study the best of art, mainly paintings but also other media, from the Middle Ages to this century and seeing it as an integral part of history.

We also have regular visits to notable art galleries, museums, houses and gardens as well as UK and foreign holidays with Art being the common thread. Recent visits or holidays have been Nantwich Town and Church, Lichfield Town and Cathedral, Gardens and Houses of Norfolk, Laskettt Gardens near Hereford and Imperial War Museum North.
