Who we are...
Craigieburn Art Group (C.A.G) was formed at a public meeting in March 1990. Our home for the past 26 years has been the meeting rooms at St. Thomas’ Uniting Church, Craigieburn. Now members meet every Monday evening 7.00 p.m to 9.30 p.m. (except long weekends and public holidays) to work on their individual art work at Selwyn House (20 Selwyn Avenue, Craigieburn). Most of our members use oils, watercolour, acrylic, pastel, pen and ink, drawing with pencil and charcoal, etc. At the end of most sessions the members present their art work to the group and a constructive talk is held by way of helpful hints and encouragement. Our core of excellent artists who are only too happy to pass on their knowledge to new comers.
Each year CAG hold an Annual Art Exhibition as part of the Craigieburn Festival (End of summer). Members donate paintings as prize for a Special Effort to raise much needed funds for the Craigieburn S.E.S.
Each year the CAG give away Art Vouchers to five primary schools within Craigieburn area to encourage young pupils to continue their art.
This is a friendly group that enjoys the friendships which are made through their common love of art. You are all most welcome to attend our annual art shows.
