Painting together

Spalding Arts & Crafts Society

Founded 1916

Come and join us!

We hope you enjoy visiting our website, and if you are not already a member maybe you will feel inspired to come and join us. We are a friendly group of local artists, and are always ready to welcome new members, whether you are professional artists (in which case we can benefit from your experience!), or total beginners looking for help and inspiration.

Non-members are welcome to come along to our monthly meetings, watch the demonstrations, and enjoy a cup of tea and a chat. Non-members entry £5.00.

Details of exhibitions, demonstration evening reports, dates etc updated regularly in our blog - SACS News - see panel below. Easily browse the section you want by using the Categories link in the blog.

See also bottom of page for announcements.


Our blog is the place to find details of forthcoming demonstrations, dates for painting at the Hub, events, and reports etc.

You can also follow us on Facebook. See banner link below.


April and May demonstrations have been cancelled.

See notice below.

To all members & visitors


In light of the latest directives the committee have decided to cancel the April & May demonstration & Hub meetings. The Springfields Painting Competition & the Pinchbeck Church Exhibition are postponed until further notice. We will make a decision at the end of April re further meetings.

Please help support the society by paying your subs which were due at the April meeting, either by bank transfer or cheque. Please let Ann Dring know that you have paid.

I have set up a private Facebook group for members so that we can still have challenges & maintain some contact. Click on the link on our Facebook Page to request to join.

Hopefully this will just be a temporary blip in our existence but in the meantime keep safe & Happy Painting.

Members Facebook Group

As we won't be meeting for a while we have now set up a Facebook group for members of SACS to post their pictures in. Either click on the link below the banner on our Facebook page or go to Groups in the side bar and ask to join - there are just a couple of questions to answer.
The current challenge is for indoor scenes but you can post anything. If you are stuck with a painting and want advice just post it and ask.
It can sometimes feel a bit daunting at a meeting to introduce yourself so why not tell us bit about yourself, especially if you are new to the group.
If you know anyone who is a member but not on Facebook please offer to post pictures for them.
