Skelmersdale Art Network – celebrating and developing art in Skelmersdale

Skelmersdale Art Network grew out of a successful art exhibition held in Skelmersdale in 2019.  The organisers realised that there are lots of people across the town who enjoy creating art and who would appreciate being linked up in some sort of network.

Skelmersdale Art Network enables anyone to be part of a growing number of local people who love to create by making marks on paper.  There is no pressure or level of technical skill needed; the Network is open to all who want to experiment with painting and drawing, even with no past experience.

We hold online and in person sessions, to meet and share our work, and learn new things together.  Join us to celebrate and develop art together in Skelmersdale!

There is such talent out there and the network aims to be a place of encouragement where everyone feels comfortable ‘having a go’
