The story so far…

Beards of ManchesterWelcome to 2012! If you’re a user of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, a.k.a. the Mayan calendar, you’ll be on the last few pages by now. In which case, count yourself lucky – I myself am a user of the Beards of Manchester calendar and am required to replace it every  year, so stop snivelling!

2011 was a good year for the Chorlton Alternative Art Class – we hosted not one but two exhibitions in our local stomping ground of Chorlton-cum-Hardy, and sold one drawing for an undisclosed five-figure sum! Ok, one of those facts may not be true, I’ll leave you to figure out which one.

Having built up a loyal following of amateur artists since the inception of the class in 2010, we’re now taking a mighty leap forward – with our very own website! The aim is to complement our Twitter account and Facebook page with a dedicated site to show off all of your lovely drawings to their fullest.

We will also be posting articles, reviews and information about the art scene in Manchester and beyond from time to time. For all this and more, including details of our weekly Wednesday evening drawing group why not sign up to our newsletter!
