Welcome to the website of Newhaven Art Club.
Newhaven Art Club was formed over 50 years ago and for many of those years met at the Hillcrest Centre in Newhaven, East Sussex and later at Bishopstone. We now meet in Peacehaven - click here for details.
We are a friendly group of artists from Newhaven, Peacehaven, Seaford, and the surrounding area, who meet weekly to paint and draw together. Some of us are experienced artists while others are new to painting. Although we don't offer instruction there is always someone on hand to help beginners with any questions they may have.
Our programme is very varied and includes a mutual discussion afternoon once a month where members can bring their paintings to be viewed in a friendly and supporting atmosphere. Our winter programme includes demonstrations and life models as well as afternoons of doing "just what you want". During the summer months, there are outside painting and sketching afternoons at local beauty spots as well as meetings at the homes of members where we indulge in tea and cakes in the garden.
We also hold an Annual Exhibition at the Crypt Gallery in Seaford, where members can exhibit up to six paintings. There is a small charge for exhibiting.
Our annual general meeting is in October every year.
Why not come along to one of meetings and see how you get on! Look forward to seeing you there.
