Formed in 1974, Congleton Art Society provides members with the opportunity to paint, draw and generally appreciate art. Meetings are held on Fridays at the 1st Congleton Scout Headquarters in Worrall Street, (near the Leisure Centre) Congleton, CW12 1DT commencing at 7.30 p.m. The programme of events includes demonstration evenings by visiting artists, workshops for different mediums and group participation events. On evenings designated for own work there is usually a still life composition set up for members to draw or paint.
The Society’s programme of activities is designed to provide an insight into today’s many different art techniques and to give the opportunity for members to try for themselves. Subjects have included watercolours, acrylics and oil painting, drawing, print making, colleography, still life exercises, pastel drawing, working with clay, calligraphy, group exercises and using new materials.
The Society stages an annual exhibition in the autumn when members exhibit their work much of it for sale.
Membership of Congleton Art Society is open to anyone who lives or works in the Congleton area.
If you are interested join us on a Friday evening at the Scout Headquarters or contact us via the enquiry service.
