THE Koorliny Leisure Painters want to invite new members to join their social art group on Tuesday mornings at the Koorliny Arts Centre.

Joan Curtis has been painting with the group for 19 years and says the friendships formed is what keeps her going.

Fellow painter Bronwyn Robert agrees. “Everyone helps everybody and it’s a mixed media group,” she said.

On Tuesday, Bronwyn was working on an oil painting of Greens Pool from a photo she took in Williams Bay, while other group members worked with pastels, acrylic, pencils and watercolour.

Artists work on their own projects and can display works for sale in the arts centre.

Entry is normally $10, but $5 is being charged while the group looks for a facilitator.

The Koorliny Leisure Painters meet in a studio of the centre, 9am-noon.
