Randwick Art Society provides a range of activities for members, including: our Monday Art Studio, an Annual Exhibition and other exhibition opportunities, Demonstrations and Workshops, and a quarterly Newsletter. We also offer an online Members’ Gallery, which showcases the wonderful variety and expertise of our art and craft members. Our members welcome enquiries about sales and commissions of their work.
Randwick Art Society is also a member of the Combined Art Societies of Sydney (CASS), which enables our members to participate in CASS exhibitions and workshops.
Monday Art Studio– All Welcome
We meet each Monday, from 9.00am to 1.00pm, at the Randwick Literary Institute, 60 Clovelly Road, Randwick NSW. (Corner of Clovelly Rd and Market St). It is a very friendly, relaxed atmosphere and new members are most welcome to attend.
Our members choose their own medium – we have people sketching, using pastels, watercolour, oils and acrylics. Just bring your current project and art or craft supplies along and start painting, etc. We often provide support and feedback to each other and learn in that way. We look forward to seeing you there.
A kettle is available to have morning tea or lunch with us; tea and coffee is supplied. (Please bring your own food). There is also a small park adjoining the Institute, if you wish to take a break and sit outside.
There is a small weekly fee of $4.00, which assists with costs of renting the premises for the morning.
Demonstrations and Workshops
Randwick Art Society offers art demonstrations and workshops from time to time. Information about upcoming demonstrations and workshops is advertised on our website, in our quarterly newsletter and additional information emails are sent to members from time to time.
