The Painting for Pleasure group meet on Mondays from 9:00am to 1:00pm. It is for anyone who enjoys painting from novices to masters. The sessions are continuos and you can join at any time. Contact Tony on 3103 1609 or 0403 775 996.


If you have time on your hands, why not come and join Monday's art classes held at the Logan North Library.  Whether you are a beginner or a budding up-and-coming artist, you will be made very welcome in the relaxed atmosphere with the friendly students.

Tony Hunter is our facilitator, not art teacher, but if you are wanting a bit of assistance, the students are always willing to offer advice and encouragement.  We even have a retired art teaching volunteering to join the classes occasionally.  Your works of art can also be displayed in the cabinets around the library.  The students will tell you that they are not only there for the art, they also enjoy the companionship.

Bring your own canvas, paints, books, etc.  There are tea/coffee making facilities.

The classes are held on a Monday from 9am - 1.00pm and on the 4th Monday of the month from 1-4pm.

This is your chance to explore and discover your artistic flair, tapping into your right brain.  The most important ingredient being to have fun.

A great group for friends, fun and creativity.

The Camera Club meets twice a month on the second and fourth Mondays at the Logan North Library from 11:00 to 12:45.  The class is full for first term in 2013 but you can still register with the tutors to have your name put on the waiting list and if people drop out you will be contacted. Bill and Diane Bohlen 3208 3729.

 They have a great meeting room provided by the Logan North Library.

The session usually starts with a Show and Tell session of members photos. It is purely voluntary but it helps everyone learn what makes a good photo. This is followed by a lesson on a variety of photography topics and techniques. 

At the end of the session there is time for a coffee and sharing knowledge of cameras with one another.

Once a term they have guest speakers with expertise in different areas of photography.

 Once a term they have a field trip photo shoot.
