Blackpool Art Society was originally formed in 1884. It is one of the oldest Art Societies in Britain
Our aim is to encourage members to experiment with and enjoy all forms of art. Our members are a mix of leisure painters of all abilities and professional artists. Our interests are very diverse, encompassing traditional and contemporary styles in all kind of media. This makes our exhibitions really interesting and dynamic events.
The day to day running of the Society is handled by a dedicated Committee of unpaid elected volunteers.
We have our own studio which was purpose built in 1972. The studio facilities are available for all our members to use and we have several weekly studio groups, catering for various interests.
Having our own studio also enables us to hosts a very varied schedule of workshops, demonstrations and talks throughout the year.
Notice to members:
The Studio closed at the moment because of the Covid pandemic. We hope things will return to normal soon, and we will be able to re-open early in 2021
The Studio has now got a WiFi connection installed to provide another useful facility to the Society. In order to make good use of it, computer workshops will be organised to help members struggling with the new technology to learn how to use it. These sessions will cover the basics such as emails, photographs, word processing etc., and digital art for those want to try it.
