Our members had a fantastic day at the first ever “Summer Art Challenge” at the Museum of Rural Life in East Kilbride 🎨 There was a great turnout despite the weather warnings and our very own Wendy Greig won the competition! There was some brilliant work created within a very short space of time and it was great to meet Julie Arbuckle who was judging the competition. Well done to all of our members who attended!
East Kilbride Art Club
The East Kilbride Art Club runs on Tuesday evenings from 7-9pm in the Murray Owen Centre.
We are a friendly group and all skill levels/abilities are welcome. We have a range of activities lined up for this year including demonstrations from talented artists, member run workshops and events. There will also be plenty of work night’s allowing you time to work on personal projects and portfolios.
We are very excited to be having our first exhibition this September so if you are interested in becoming a member please send us a message! Your first week at the art club is free, so why not come along and see what we are all about…
We occasionally have demonstrations from local artists to encourage and inspire our club members. It’s great to get an insight into their approach and learn the from the professionals.
Recently some of our members have been enjoying painting “en plein air” and it’s been fun taking part in competitions such as Capture Culzean and the Summer Art Challenge.
We allow plenty of worknights for artists to get on with their personal projects in a relaxed environment with other artists. It’s a great opportunity to receive feedback and gain insights from other club members.
Sometimes it’s good to shake things up and get out of your comfort zone. Our member run workshops are a great opportunity to try something new within the group.
what do our members think?
Art was truly the only subject at school that I loved. After being turned down for an art course, art took a back seat while I found employment in admin. Social activities, marriage and a baby soon took over my spare time and the paint brushes were forgotten.
Roll on 25 years and my daughter Tina decided she wanted to keep her fine art skills going and so the East Kilbride Art Club was born, and my love of art was reignited.
