Art for All (Practical Techniques)
Art for All Group Leader Aleks Partington
There are currently five Art for All groups:
- Introduction and Improvers
- Acrylics and Mixed Media Morning Group
- Acrylics and Mixed Media Afternoon Group
The groups meet on a Thursday at Fairfield and Howley Neighbourhood and Community Centre, Fairfield Street, Warrington WA1 3AJ. There is a large car park and the centre is on various bus routes along Manchester Road.
This time our year runs from September to July. Each group normally meets once every four weeks. We hold our annual exhibition jointly with the Photography group at the end of June.

All Art for All meetings are on Thursdays, either morning from 10.30am to 12.30pm or 1.30pm to 3.30pm. For health and safety considerations details of the meeting schedule will be provided once you are signed on to a Group.
You will need to fill in an Art for All Enrolment Form. It is quite important that you give a correct email address and telephone number so that you can be contacted with notes for the sessions.
You can elect to be in any class but must be free to attend regularly. Group leaders will help select the most appropriate group for you. Because of the size of the room and Covid-19 restrictions, each group is limited to 10 members, although waiting lists will be made if any groups are oversubscribed. Members who miss three or more meetings without good reason may lose their place to a person on the waiting list.

You will need to provide your own equipment as advised by your group leader, who will recommended what to buy and suggest places to get it. There are also some emergency supplies in the cupboard at Fairfield Old School.
