Sunderland Art Club was first established in 1943. The Club has always welcomed artists of all ages and abilities and continues to do so. This website is intended to make the club more accessible, showcase members work and advertise our programme of events and exhibitions. Above all, it aims to encourage people, especially beginners, to come along and have a go.
As of September 2018, the Club is to revert to meeting only once a week, on a Friday morning between 09.30 and 12.00 at St Cecilia's Church Hall on Ryhope Road, next to Southmoor School; where we use the hall to the rear of the church. Regrettably, our use of the Roker Watch House on Monday evenings has been dis-continued due to poor attendances.
A programme of themes for our Friday meetings is issued to encourage members to try new mediums, new subject matter and to generally broaden their range and stretch their abilities. The programme will typically include sessions on portraiture, still life and the showing of educational DVDs. See the 'Programme' icon below.
The Club does not offer tuition as such, but our experienced members are happy to give advice and encouragement.
Please do come along and join us, we'd love to gain some new members.
