The Bournemouth Bay Art Group – or BBAG as it is commonly known – was formed in 2003 by like-minded artists, who were students of Frances Shearing, a talented local artist and teacher, who is herself a member.


The object of the group is to practice and appreciate drawing, painting and other visual arts by working together for mutual improvement and benefit.

The club meets each week and promotes a programme of activities such as working sessions, talks, discussions, demonstrations, critiques, visits, painting holidays, exhibitions and sales of paintings.
