The mission of the Westport Art Group is to stimulate and promote the appreciation and encouragement of the arts and crafts.

The Westport Art Group was formed by a group of amateur and professional artists early in 1956. The members held classes in each others’ homes. The first Community Show was held in July, 1956 in the Westport Point School. It attracted a large crowd. In 1971, Elizabeth Yeomans Booth donated land to WAG in memory of Edward, Julia and their son, Andrew Yeomans, for the encouragement of the arts and crafts. She stipulated that a building was to be erected on the property within two years. The members raised funds and worked hard to do that and that is how 1740 Main Road came about.

WAG celebrated 50 years by honoring Dorothy Gifford Curtis, the last surviving Founding member, with a plaque at a Valentine’s Tea and an exhibit of her paintings in February, 2006.

This workshop is appropriate for beginner to intermediate. We will spend the first day drawing, concentrating on the planes of the head. We will then spend time working from a live model. The second day we’ll be painting, working from live model(s). The instructor will do a short demonstration both days at the beginning of class. Oil or acrylic are recommended, although watercolor is acceptable if you’re comfortable with that medium.
