Not all groups practice the same techniques. Drawing, watercolors, acrylic, oil or pastel works, portraits etc. are possible within our association. In some group There are groups that limit themselves to one technique, but also groups in which a variety of techniques are practiced (see diagram below).
Given the space in our studio and the desire of our artistic supervisors to be able to pay attention to each present, the maximum group size is 15 people. If, for whatever reason, you want to change groups, please contact our member administrator.
In reality these internal group changes remain limited. Painting together means, in addition to the social aspect, also stimulating each other to artistic achievements. Some groups therefore have a strong "group feeling".

The following activities can only be resumed in some near future if new persons have signed up to become member of the committee for activities. The board tries to organize multiple workshops per year. So, that is on top of the regular lessons. Think of drawing, portrait painting, color theory, composition, perspective and abstract painting. Usually the costs of such workshop can be kept low
Our association organizes a yearly artfully oriented excursion. Such a trip is usually part of a broader range of activities. Note however that these excursions can only take place in some near future if new persons have signed up to become member of the committee for activities.
We organize an exhibition of our members' work twice a year. This is also one of the subsidy conditions of the Municipality of Eindhoven. We usually have a large and a small exhibition. The small exhibition includes the work of one group. Note: the insurance taken out by the association does not provide cover for loss of or damage to the exhibited works of art.
A group of volunteers rolled up their sleeves on 26 August! After a nice piece of home-baked cake, a lot of cleaning and tidying up was done. A tasty lunch was offered by the board, as thanks for the effort. Various items were collected in the storage room. We ask you to have a look if there is anything of yours, please take it home with you before the 1st of November. You have also received an e-mail about this. A great time for the coming year and thanks again to the cleaning team for their efforts!
We worked towards the exhibition with the Monday afternoon group and organizing it together, made us feel closer. Because of the beautiful works and set-up, the diversity came out well. The announcement in Groot Eindhoven worked well and the exhibition was very well visited. While drinking coffee or tea and enjoying a snack, lively conversations arose about the beautiful works. Thanks to the many help obtained from the association, the construction and dismantling of the exhibition went smoothly. In short: a successful as a group we all enjoyed. Ineke Sanders
