ABOUT THE COOKHAM ARTS CLUB

Cookham Arts Club is a friendly club which welcomes beginners as well more experienced artists over the age of 18.

The Club was formed in 1941 when artists left London to escape the bombing in World War 2. They started various groups in the club for painting, theatricals, music, poetry and had recitals, plays and pantomimes. They began holding Exhibitions in the village once or twice a year. In later years most of the activities were gradually phased out as circumstances changed and today we focus on painting, although we do welcome members who make pottery and sculpture or work with glass.

MONTHLY NEWSLETTER

The club produces a monthly newsletter with interesting articles and photos of the previous month’s events and details of forthcoming events, including the venue, booking details and fees.

DEMONSTRATIONS

Once a month at Cookham Parish Centre we have a 2 hour demonstration by a professional artist. There is a small charge of £1 to cover hire of the hall and refreshments, (non-members or guests are welcome but they pay £4 per session). Details of the demonstrations may be found in the Events Calendar and the newsletter
