ART APPRECIATION    art@oxtonu3a.co.uk

If you are at all interested in Art you will enjoy the study of work by various artists both in house and visiting exhibitions. The  artists studied range from Italian Masters to Impressionists and Modern Art and will spark an interest in people of all tastes. Discussions are informative, stimulating and slightly irreverent at times, but all enjoy them. The group meets on the 3rd Wednesday in the month from 10:30 am - 12:00 noon.


This group meets on the 2nd Tuesday each month from 10:30 - 12:00 noon. The group is quite large and is currently full – if you want to join a daytime group there is now the New Book Group (below).
