About Us

PaintersThe group of painters, 'Artists in the Park', was formed in February 2016 with nine founding members purchasing easels for the group. We meet every Tuesday from 10am - 2pm at Primrose Park Art & Craft Centre at the end of Matora Lane, off Young Street, Cremorne. Our email address, if you wish to contact us, is artistsinthepark@gmail.com

Our Aim:

To encourage and develop the skills of artists by providing an environment where artists can come together to share and develop their ideas and techniques in painting with oils and acrylics, sketching and mixed media.

Member Value Activities:

The Artists run a vibrant cooperative painting group on Tuesdays where they come together and share ideas on the creative journey to becoming skilled artists.

The group had several brain storming sessions to develop workshops ideas and activities. This resulted in the running of the first workshop in July, "Learnings from the National Art School (NAS)" which outlined the influences of the various disciples at the NAS. The next workshop ‘Colour Theory’ in September was run by Debbie Mackinnon, an artist, teacher and gallery owner.

The first mixed artist’s exhibition entitled “Brushstrokes” opened in October 2016 with ten percent of sales from the exhibition donated to “Youth Off The Streets” (YOTS), charity. The works of members were hung and displayed for three weeks on the mezzanine  and the larger lower studio space below.

The artist group is very appreciative of this inspiring art-space facility provided by North Sydney Council. They are delighted to promote the facility and develop art appreciation within the community.
