Mount Ida Painters Guild

Mount Ida Painters Guild, was formed as a social gathering of like minded artists, to meet once a week, and paint together. By consensus we occasionally invite an artist to our meeting to instruct or demonstrate a technique. However, as a rule, no formal instruction is given, never-the-less we learn an amazing amount of artistic information from each other. As well as critique, we offer our fellow members new ideas.

Mainly our mission is to meet and exchange ideas, socially and informally, and enjoy a day painting together.

As well as our annual show, we exhibit paintings in the library once a year, and we show paintings in the Piccadilly Mall.
