About the Club
Walton Art Club meet nearly every Wednesday evening from the beginning of September through to the end of June each year. The evenings start at 7pm and run until 9.30pm.
Whether you are interested in oils, acrylics, watercolours, pen or pencils, why not come along and give it a try. There is a wide range of skills and mediums brought to each evening by our members, and there is always someone on hand to give help and advice. We are sure that you will enjoy the evenings and come back for more. And, who knows, you may be one of the lucky ones to sell a painting at one of our Exhibitions.
The aim of the club is to help people to enjoy art in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. There is no vetting so anyone can join as long as they have an interest in art. The annual membership fee is £25 (see the Contacts page) and there is a £2 fee for each evening. On the first Wednesday of most months we invite a guest artist to give a demonstration and non-members are very welcome to attend. For these evenings, we have an admission charge of £4. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available during the interval.
If you want to join or find out more
'Joining' this website has no effect and is not checked very often!
If you would like to see whether the Club suits you, feel free to come along on any demonstration evening where you will be able to talk to a member of the committee. If you want to see what a painting evening is like, please visit (without materials) and see what goes on. Although the evenings start at 7pm, it would be best to turn up at about 7.30 when people have settled down to their current project. If you like what you see, you would be welcome to join.

We usually hold two exhibitions each year, at the end of May and the end of November. Please see the Riverhouse Barn events page for further details.
History of the Club
The Club was launched in 1960 when a group of budding artists completed a session of adult education, and wanted to continue to belong to a group but without the ongoing expense and repetition of the classes.
