The Salford Art Club has unveiled its members’ latest work, a series of sketches made at their Christmas special still life session. 

The club, which was founded in 1947, meets every Wednesday at the Salford Museum and Art Gallery for a two-hour session to practise drawing and painting.

It has 50 members of which 20 to 30 attend regularly. Activities follow a monthly cycle, alternating portrait, live and still life sessions as well as talks or demonstrations once every month.

Philip Westcott, social media manager at the club, said: “We have a full range of members from University students to retired people. We’ve just had our big exhibition, which was a big success.”

The Christmas drawings were made by members of the club in one evening only.

Mr Westcott added: “We did this Christmas still life session similarly to something we did for Halloween earlier this year. The still life is displayed in the middle and then people around make sketches.”
