About Us.

Opportunity to practice different styles using a variety of media!

 Our resident tutor - Jacqui Wilkes  

My background is teaching Art and Design in Further Education, which I did for quite a number of years.

I have been the resident tutor for Art in Adlington (AinA) from the day it started and I’m now in my eleventh year.  

I work in most mediums and enjoy the challenge of something new. I enjoy painting in oils, acrylics and watercolours and like to work in both hard and soft pastels.

In the past I have had a couple of one-man exhibitions, exhibiting over thirty pieces of work each time.

I am a member of the Society for All Artists (SAA) teaching bank for Lancashire and Yorkshire.

I enjoy My AinA sessions each week as we have a lovely, friendly group of members who produce some excellent pieces of work.

New members (aged over 18) are always welcome. Sessions are held in Fairview Youth & Community Centre/Highfield Rd North, Adlington, Chorley PR6 9RN.

If you are interested in joining our friendly group please use the contact form on this site to get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you!

The group is managed by a committee of volunteers. They organise the sessions at Fairview, coordinate exhibitions, book visiting artists, manage membership details, order supplies and refreshments, publicise the group through the website and local press and deal with the money involved.

The full committee for 2023/24 voted in at the AGM in February is Tony Ryder (Chair), Gwen Howells (Secretary), Tony Howells (Treasurer), Jeannette Cliffe, Gill Smith, Lynda Finney and Viv Newman .
