Although we do not have a tutor we organise occasional demonstrations, workshops or critiques. During a short summer break we also take the opportunity to organise outdoor painting trips, always worthwhile. We all enjoy the freedom of choice of media and subject at our own pace, exchanging views and hints and tips whenever possible. This formula has worked well since our inception in 1990.
If you view our Gallery and wish to have information on any artist then please contact Roche Art Group via the SAA web site facility. Thank you.

- Roche Art Group Annual Exhibition
As part of our 2012 exhibition and sale of paintings we were delighted to invite Year 6 pupils of St Teresa's Primary School to enter a painting competition on the theme of "Something New". We received a good selection of paintings and all were exhibited on 27 October. The winning entry and five "highly commended" all received an award certificate together with painting materials for future use. Our judge also provided an encouraging critique for all paintings.
Although we do not have a tutor, we help each other in a friendly and relaxed way. This formula has worked extremely well for over 20 years. Following a brief history of tutoring our founder members decided to continue independent of a tutor and many of our later members have joined without previous experience - just a desire to learn to draw and/or paint.
May 2013 - Caroline Stevens - Oil demonstration "the Bob Ross way."
November 2012. A second visit by Paul Karslake who enthralled us again with his airbrush technique. This time he produced a portrait of John Wayne completed in just under one hour.
March 2012 - oil pastel workshop with Judy Goring a most talented and motivating art teacher.
January 2012: A "critique" evening with Paul Alcock. Paul was invited to our Group to assess and give guidance on our selected paintings. Each member brought along at least one painting for his consideration and his experienced eye gave everyone much to consider. Paul is an established tutor (based in Essex) and more details of his own work and classes can be found at www.paulalcock.co.uk. Also see www.rochfordlife.com
Sept 2011: We thoroughly enjoyed a demonstration by JAMES MERRIOTT (watercolourist) and an interesting article and pictures of the evening can be viewed at www.rochfordlife.com
