We inform and encourage all artists & art lovers through our monthly presentations and demonstrations.
A full yearly programme of activities includes workshops, exhibitions visits and social events.
In view of the Government’s recommendations on the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic, we have cancelled all monthly meetings and the Spring Exhibition until further notice. We will contact members when the future becomes clearer. The committee will discuss reimbursement or reduced membership fees as and when the situation returns to normality.
The aim of Rugby & District Art Society is to foster all forms of art in the town and district. The membership is a representative mix of amateur and professional artists and others interested in the arts in Rugby and a wide surrounding area.
Our monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm are held at Dunchurch Village Hall.
Our newsletter is The Easel. This is a showcase for all aspects of the Society’s activities. It reports committee meetings, events, exhibitions and anything else that is thought to be of interest to members and those who would like to learn more about our Society.
