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.
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.
In the February issue of the Easel:
• Report on Awards Night 2018
• Members Art Trail experience in Northampton
• The January Crit Night including How NOT to frame your pictures!
