The Cotswold Art Club, founded in 1931, gives support and encouragement to its Members with artist’s demonstrations, workshops, en plein air and exhibitions.
- Artist demonstrations are held monthly, on Saturday afternoons from September to June, in Cheltenham.
- Tutored workshops are arranged during the year, in various styles and mediums.
- In Summer, members meet occasionally at pre-arranged venues for outdoor sketching and painting.
- Exhibitions are arranged in the local area, to enable members to sell and exhibit their work.
Thinking of joining us..?
The Cotswold Art Club is made up of members of mixed abilities, amateur and professional. We meet on the afternoon of the third Saturday of each month from September to June in The Pavilion, Hatherley Lane, Cheltenham GL51 6PN at 2-30pm – 4.30pm. We usually have a talk/demonstration by someone in the art fraternity that is always enjoyable, informative and useful with a tea break halfway through. You will be made very welcome by our Committee welcome group and current members if you wish to attend.
There are occasional Workshops during the year that are held on a Saturday from 10am – 4/4.30pm, usually located at Up Hatherley Village Hall. We hold our annual exhibition in Lower Slaughter Village Hall and sometimes elsewhere as well.
The current joining fee for the club is £10 plus an annual membership fee of £20 for the year, 1st January-31st December (cheques payable to Cheltenham Art Club) and sent to Dave Hooper. You join as an Associate Member and as such you are entitled to attend and take part in everything except exhibiting. The annual membership fee for both associate and full members is the same. Associates cannot exhibit their work until it has been seen and accepted by a Selection Committee, meeting once or twice a year at a Saturday meeting – the next one being at the October meeting. This is very informal: you are invited to bring three pieces of your original work (copies or prints are not accepted). If accepted, you will become a Full Member and may exhibit at all Club exhibitions, generally without further selection.
