Under the watchful eye of Martyn Harris, a professional artist and in house resident at The Art Yard gallery and studios, MFAA group has rekindled its Portrait Group sessions.

To begin with Martyn is running the group in the main ground floor gallery every fortnight on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 pm. Each session will have 2 models for artists to work from. Attendance is open to all artists of all abilities who bring along their own materials to work with.

These sessions have always proved to be very popular with artists so booking beforehand with The Art Yard team is essential if you want to take part.


Midland Film and Art


Midland Film and Art is a membership club where people can enjoy screenings of films or view artwork and crafts that would otherwise not be shown in mainstream cinemas or exhibitions, or be available locally. These shows usually have an educational aim, introducing new audiences to different audiovisual works through screening and display, encouraging participation in arts and crafts. A common feature that may characterize a Midland Film and Art meeting is that they either begin with an introduction to the audience and/or end with the promotion of a discussion about the film/art, where assistants, organizers and sometimes the filmmakers/artists themselves, exchange their views.
