Welcome to the Seaton & District Art Society.
Firstly a note from our Chairman, Christine Sullivan.
The weather might be gloomy today but remember that spring is only just round the corner.
So now’s a good time to get our spring colours ready and wash out our paint trays and even buy some new colours. I love the spring green of the new leaves, difficult to mix. Oh what a challenge!
Looking forward to welcoming you all to our demonstrations and workshops in 2022.
We shall of course be mindful of COVID and take precautions where appropriate.
And a welcome message from Secretary, Jacky Wheeler.
Welcome everybody to the Seaton & District Art Society Website. The Society is based in Seaton on the South Devon Coast giving the wonderful advantage to members of having both the sea and beach and beautiful Devon countryside for inspiration.We are an optimistic bunch and as 2022 rolls in we have a full calendar for you to enjoy.
Once a month, on the first Monday in the month, we have a demonstration by a professional artist. This is also broadcast via Zoom to members who cannot attend in person. The subject matter is wide-ranging. There are painting demonstration in watercolour, acrylic and oils plus specialist talks on a wide variety of subjects including lino printing, sculpture and collage.
Then, on the other three Monday afternoons of each month, except in August when we have our Annual Exhibition in Seaton for members to display and sell their works, we meet up for an art session we call ‘Monday Club’. This generally involves inviting a model (usually clothed) to sit for us. It is open to non-members (who we try to persuade to join us for just 20 pounds a year) and costs just 3 pounds per session for members and non-members alike. We are able to subsidise this as our membership is strong (with over 100 members) – and from revenue brought in by sales at our Annual Exhibition and other events.
If you enjoy art but don’t think you are very good, don’t worry. We can assure you that you are very welcome to join us. The ‘more the merrier’ and a good sense of humour and a keenness to have a go and enjoy yourself is what we believe in. So get your brushes and paints dusted down, prime your empty cereal boxes or canvasses and come along for a free taster session.
