East Kilbride Art Club
The East Kilbride Art Club runs on Tuesday evenings from 7-9pm from the art room in Calderglen High School.
We are a friendly group and all skill levels/abilities are welcome. We organise a range of activities including demonstrations from artists, events and an annual exhibition. There will also be plenty of work nights allowing you time to work on personal projects.
Your first week at the art club is free, so why not come along and see what we are all about…
We 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.
Some of our members enjoy 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. We have member run workshops and workshops from established artists which provide 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.
