Brush Art Group

Recently established by Karen Jones and Sue Tennet, the art group meets on the first Thursday of each month at Torfaen Museum in the Oriel Barker Gallery.

Specialising in Chinese brush art, Karen and Sue are always happy to greet new artists to the group, whether working in watercolour, oil or another medium. If you have an interest in painting, why not come along to paint, share ideas or just chat?

Session runs between 10.30am and 12.30pm. For further information, please contact the Museum.
