Plymouth Arts Club currently meets on Tuesday evenings during term time at the Swarthmore Centre (see programme).

The club holds one exhibition each year and welcomes new members who have acquired the basic skills and wish to develop them further. However, the club’s programme has proved so popular that there is currently a 2-year waiting list! If you would like to have your name added to the waiting list please email your details to the secretary at mbattley@talktalk.net and we will get back to you.  In the meantime you might like to check out the other clubs in the area and there are other life drawing opportunities in Plymouth.

Painting in any media is encouraged as well as other media including photography. To find out more about the club, please see the club information.

The Plymouth Arts Club is the oldest arts club in Plymouth. The club had its first meeting in 1865. Read more about the history of the club.

The Spring Programme is now available online here.  There are plenty of demonstrations and workshop that we hope you will find interesting.  Tuesday 12th December is the club's critique and social evening.  We hope to see you there with your portfolios.  During the evening you will have the chance to see what other members have been creating this year. 

Just a reminder that on the 12 December we have our ‘End of Year Extravaganza’.  For the benefit of new members please bring along your portfolio of any work produced during the year, in the form of sketchbooks, charcoal drawings, paintings, framed pictures etc, in fact anything.  There will be some drinks, non alcoholic of course, and nibbles provided, and if you would like to bring along something extra to share around this will also be appreciated.  There will be an ‘Arty Quiz’ this year set by Phil, who won last year, and a small present for the winner.  At the end of the evening votes will be counted and the coveted Claude Kitto Trophy will be given for the most Imaginative and Creative portfolio in the show.  We hope to see as many as possible along to show your work and celebrate yet another successful year for the Plymouth Arts Club.

We hope you have enjoyed a productive summer, making the most of sunny days and avoiding the showers.  Just a reminder that our sessions recommence on Tuesday the 19th September 7pm with "Portraiture".  Just a reminder that 'Handing in  Day' for the Exhibition is Monday the 25th September from 9.30 to 12.00 at the exhibition venue, The Column Bakehouse Cafe, Ocean Studios, Factory Cooperage, Royal William Yard, Plymouth.
