Painters Group

Anyone interested in joining an ongoing informal painters group for the purpose ofsharing know-how,benefiting from mutual creative support and enjoying casual interactive learning from fellow artists can contact Natalie Newton at or  phone 52362562
The objective of the group is not to be a workshop but to be a continuing, regularly planned get-together of painters in any medium (watercolour, acrylics, oil, pastels or pencils) for the opportunity to create paintings in a group setting which can offer constructive encouragement, or just the chance to work alongside other likeminded artists.

This fee will be slightly higher for non-BCAG members.
ALL artists of any skill level from beginners to experts are welco…

Learn how to fundraise in the Creative Partnerships ART CLINIC

MATCH Lab is the new iteration of Creative Partnerships Australia's matched funding program for independent artists and groups.

The hope is that the adjusted program will allow everyone to be involved in joyful music making without having to make a choice between Musical Mondays and the opportunities the two worthwhile, above mentioned projects will present. During 2017, Musical Mondays will be held every last Monday of the month, from February through to, and including, November.  Birregurra Community Arts Group has re-committed it's financial support for the Birregurra Singing Circle for the year and it also will run every last Monday of the month @ 7pm as part of Musical Mondays.
