Welcome

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 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.
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.
You can also interact with the club via its Facebook page.
A recent innovation is the forming of a WhatsApp Group to facilitate painting en plein air. Favourite locations seem to be Whitburn, Seaham, Riverside by NGC ... but we are open to suggestions! Social Distancing will be strictly observed, as will the wearing of masks as they are very handy for storing your pencil sharpener or wiping your brushes!! Contact Mike Lowe if you wish to be added to the group.
NOTE THAT: MEETINGS IN THE CHURCH HALL ARE CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO THIS BLASTED CORVID 19 … whatever happened to good-old Corvids 1 to 18??
Our new term will begin as soon as this accursed virus subsides … so it could be a while yet.
