The Art Group organises outings for people in Bowes Park who would like to do some drawing, though you don't have to draw - others are welcome to come along. Trips are organised every month or so to museums or, in the summer, parks and cemeteries. Sometimes we do day trips out of London to historic places, travelling by rail on '4 for the price of 2' tickets.
If you would like to join us on our next trip or you would like more information then please click here to go the "Contact Us" form where you can choose the Art Group from the drop down menu to direct your email.

The museum has drawable exhibits inside, including a special exhibition on ‘Floriculture, flowers, love and money’, ”exploring the inspiration of cut flowers to painters, and to the art of floristry, and their symbolism in rites of passage such as marriage, funerals, and memory.” It also has a nice garden and a café and shop - all the things we need!http://www.gardenmuseum.org.uk.: NB: you do not have to draw - you can just come along to see the museum.
