Welcome



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.

Just a reminder that we start our Autumn term Tuesday 18th September with the WW1 Poppy Painting Challenge.  Please have a look at www.saa.co.uk/poppy to see some of the inspirational idea that have already been submitted, and maybe bring along a ‘poppy’ image. I will be supplying a vase of poppies just to remind us how they look.  We will also supply a square of watercolour paper 125 x 125mm for your entry, but you may wish to bring some extra pieces to practice on.  At the end of the evening we will be sending one per member with our donation to The Royal British Legion.

Tuesday 18th September we will be starting the new term and as you can see we kick off with the SAA ‘Paint a Poppy Challenge’.  Please have a look at the website: saa.co.uk/poppy where you will find a gallery of work already submitted and some inspirational ideas.  The entrance fees for that evening will be donated to the British Legion.  We will be providing the small squares of watercolour paper to work on and the entry forms, and dispatching them with a cheque to the SAA.  So, we look forward to to seeing as many of you as possible on that evening to kick off the new PAC year.
