Painting Venues 2017

Following on from previous years successful Outdoor Painting Excursions we have now arranged the next set of six planned venues (See table below).

All the Painting days are on THURSDAYS and we have selected them to alternate between local venues and those a little further (if you live in the Preston area that is !!)

The trips are OPEN to ALL (You do not need to be a New Longton Artists member.

Everyone will be very welcome please tell your friends
The venues generally have been chosen to include where possible close toilet facilities and somewhere for food, however bringing a packed lunch and a drink can be more practical for some of the venues.


There are no time limits set for staying or sticking together in a group you can "Do your own thing !". As long as you let people know (very important !!)

Note: Particularly for the venues further afield we do try to arrange "Car Sharing". If you would like to be involved as a passenger or a driver please can you make it known ??.

Obviously, although some inclement weather can be tolerated, these outings can be called off due to poor weather reports, in which case a general Email will be sent out to all NLA members and those Non members who have indicated an interest in the outings.

Also a Contact Telephone number for update on the day if necessary: 07979 155869

Anyone joining us should meet at the venue car park at 10.00am on the appropriate day

Note: As a courtesy, any NON Members intending to join us should let us know so that we are aware when the full group has assembled at the venue.

Venue Details given in below.

We hope you can come and join us, treat them as days out with friends and if you get a painting out of it that’s a Bonus !!!!!!

If you have any questions please ring on 01772 614270
