About Art Society
Weekly meet ups to draw/paint with materials provided by the society. A couple of times a term we will host life drawing sessions run by a professional artist and art teacher. Throughout the year we will organise socials to meet up in bars and cafes in York to draw or just chat, as well as regular exhibition and gallery going in and around York. We want to do group visits to Yorkshire art and culture events and sites such as Aesthetica Film Festival as well as Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
The University also has a fabulous fully equipped art studio in Wentworth for oil/ acrylic/watercolour painting, print-making and ceramics managed by the Art Society. Membership for the studio is separate from Art Society but can also be purchased here when you click the 'Join' button.
Classes will run in the studio on Friday evenings which are discouted for studio members only.
Studio membership of £40 a year or £15 per term will give you open ended access to the studio and its facilities and is perfect if you are in need to create art without being limited on space or worried about the mess.
18:30-19:30 every Thursday. Venue confirmed via weekly newsletter and on our Facebook page.
