How it Began
Bognor Regis Art Society started life in 1947. Our first President was R. O. Dunlop R.A. Our present membership stands at 150 from absolute beginners to the semi-professional. Most members are in between. The Jubilee Hall is ideal for demonstrations and workshops and allows a nice cup of tea mid session.
During the year we have 9-10 demonstrations in all media, Oil, Watercolour, Pastel, Pencil, etc. and have the same number of workshops where we try to emulate the previous demonstration. Three times a year we exhibit in Arundel. A handy place to interest visitors from all arount the world as proven when a purchase is taken off to USA, Asia or Europe. Once a year, at an exhibition, cups are judged by our President Mike Jupp and awarded for winners of each of the 7 media.
A new member is taken on as an Associate and can become a Full and Exhibiting member by producing 3 works judged to be of the standard required by the committee.
Other activities include outdoor painting in some members gardens, a themecompetition and a Christmas Luncheon at the Beachcroft.
