We meet on the second Wednesday of April, May, June, September, October and November in the Invercarron Resource Centre Low Wood Road Stonehaven, from 7.30pm until 9.30pm when members and visitors can come along and see a demo by a practising artist, or a talk on an art-related topic, with visuals and usually plenty of questions.
