The Brighouse Art Circle was formed in 1949 by a group of mainly professional artists. They met every week at the then newly opened Waring Green Community Centre. The Art Circle still meets there every Thursday evening at 7.30pm. Nowadays the members are all amateurs who enjoy life drawing, portraits, workshops and demonstrations by professional artists, as well as talks on other related subjects.
