Earley Painters' Workshops at Maiden Place Community Centre are held on alternate Tuesdays during the Autumn to early Summer.

All Earley Painters' sessions are untutored unless indicated, but all abilities are welcome. With each session we aim to provide a meaningful display, set up to stimulate creative juices and provide challenges.

We work in a quiet, chat-free environment, to allow our artistic brain areas to flourish.

Please bring your own choice of materials as they are NOT provided unless stated; all safe mediums may be used at our sessions, if in doubt please check first. Bring your own refreshments.

Please be aware that it is possible that topics are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. Visit this page to check for changes. For further details or to sign up for bulletins, contact Clare Buchta at:
earley-painters@rga-artists.org.uk or 0118 9693311

Venue: Maiden Place Community Centre, Lower Earley RG6 3EH.

How to find us: from Rushey Way take Kilnsea Drive, turn into Maiden Place and bear right toward Community Centre and car parks. The Function Room is on the ground floor.

£4 for each 3-hour session, 13:00 - 16:00, payable on the day.

Following on from the "Blue Squares Exhibition", the Earley Painters had another small exhibition at Woodley Library during February 2014 under the heading “REDS”.


A display of predominantly blue squares, put together to showcase the artistic skills of the Earley Painters Group. Some of the techniques and mediums represented by the squares include acrylic and watercolour painting, oil and chalk pastels, collage, mono-printing and mixed media.


The works shown were started and completed in a 3-hour RGA Earley Painters' session.
