Peterborough Art Society
Welcome To Peterborough Art Society
Thank you for visiting our site. Peterborough Art Society celebrated their 90th anniversary in 2019. We were established by a group of local artist in 1929 lead by W V Garrard who was Art Master at the local Kings School. The society was to promote and encourage local artists to improve and exhibit their work.
We continue that same ethos today, in encouraging all ages and all experiences to join us in our love of art. We are a very diverse and active society and welcome all newcomers to our Society, whether you just have an interest in art, or you are an amateur or professional artist, you will be given a very warm welcome.
ALL MEETINGS AND EVENTS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC. PLEASE CHECK BACK TOWARDS JUNE TO SEE IF ANYTHING HAS CHANGED.
Stunning Parrot By David Hyde
Professional artist David Hyde came to give us a demonstration on Monday 2nd March. David has been to Peterborough Art Society in the past and is was lovely to welcome him back once again.
During the two hour meeting he showed us the techniques he uses and discussed colours and brands he prefers. It was a lovely informative demonstration
The result was amazing as you can see.
