Highworth Artists' Society
Highworth Artists’ Society is a well-established society started in 1969 when three local
artists ran a small exhibition in the town. We now have a membership from Highworth and
the surrounding area with a waiting list being held when required. It is regretted that we
cannot accept applications for membership from anyone under the age of 18 years.
Workshops are stimulating and lively giving us all a chance to make new friends and to learn
from each other. There is no tutor so members have to have some knowledge of painting/drawing techniques and be able to work on their own projects. We suggest that absolute beginners attend classes before applying for membership.
Exhibitions are held twice a year giving our members the chance to exhibit their own, original artwork. Members and invited visitors enjoy demonstrations by professional artists 2 or 3 times during the year. Trips to events and exhibitions of artistic interest are also arranged. A Christmas buffet lunch usually completes our year. Our members are kept informed of Society news and events via our regular newsletter.
When a vacancy occurs: Applicants will be invited to come in just to meet us or they can bring along their work to join us for one free workshop session. A joining fee is required to complete the membership application.
If you would like more information about our Society or would like to become a member please email our secretary using the contact page.
