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.

To all members and visitors

Covid-19 update 14th September 2020

Sadly we have had to cancel the October meeting as the Village Hall says we don't meet their criteria for being able to meet.
Demonstration meetings will resume as soon as we are able. Due to the current regulations on numbers these will be for members only.
Please check your emails, the website & our Facebook page for further updates.

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. Thanks to those who have already paid.

There is now a Facebook group for members of the society so that we can still have challenges & maintain some contact. Click on the link on our Facebook Page to request to join - just a couple of questions to be accepted.

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

Members Facebook Group

To join just click on the link below the banner picture or go to Groups in the side bar and ask to join - there are just a couple of questions to answer yes to.
The current challenge is for a one colour tonal painting 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.
