Each year in May we hold a big picture day. Each picture presents us with a challenge. We enlarge the picture and make a colour photocopy, this is then cut into 24 pieces and given to members to paint. Members have to work together to ensure the colours match. At the end of the day the picture is assembled and compared to the original


During the painting of the big picture, members are invited to spend from 10am to 4pm at Dupont. however you can come just for the morning or afternoon.
For those new to this event, take a look at the web site and talk to other members.
We use acrylic paint. Paint and brushes can be provided, however you are invited to bring your own acrylic and brushes.

In 2019,  members painted ‘The Source of Country Music by Thomas Hart Benson. The delightful result is below.
