Art Group

Art Group

An informal art group at Ally Pally was launched in April 2014. During the warmer months of the year interested plot-holders meet weekly for a couple of hours to draw, paint or explore other media. It's not a taught art class, simply a device to encourage artwork as a regular, pleasurable activity. Everyone brings their own art materials. Towards the end of each session we show what we've done and briefly discuss the work.

From June to September in 2019 each of us arrives on Thursday afternoons about 2pm, drawing or painting alone until 3:30pm, when we met together for a light 'crit' session, tea and allotments conversation.

New members are always welcome. Previous or current experience of making art is not essential. If you are an AP or SH plot-holder and would like to join us, simply contact Pam Jackson by email: pam@% (replace % by apaa.org.uk).

From 2014 to 2016 the group met on Friday afternoons from the beginning of May until early September. In those years a selection of our work by was displayed at the CHADAHS Annual Show. In 2017 we were on site from May to September, either drawing or painting, on Tuesday afternoons.
