Blackall Range Visual Artists meet every week alongside beautiful Mapleton Lilyponds Park.

Our aim is that by sharing our collective skills and experiences we will develop and improve artistically.

A happy and productive group of friends, we are inspired by the rewards achieved from painting and drawing. 

We hold a series of workshops throughout the year. These take the form of demonstrations or practical workshops where well-known artists share their skills and techniques.
