Bridlington Art Society was first formed in 1949 by an enthusiastic group of local artists who wanted to develop their knowledge and promote their art.
Today we have about 80 members, who reside in Bridlington and the surrounding area, who continue to share that same interest.
We are a friendly bunch of people and it does not matter if you are a beginner, improver or a professional artist…or maybe you just have an interest in Art!

“ In memory of BRIAN HILL ”
Sadly our president, Brian Hill, passed away last year. His long standing support for our society was greatly appreciated, as was annual donation and his kind bequeathment.
Brian was always keen to encourage members in their arty endeavours, so we trust members will agree that by subsidising these and future workshops, it will be a suitable tribute to his memory.
All workshops are priced at £20.00 for members
£30.00 for non-members. (£10.00 refundable on joining)
Spaces are limited and available on a first come first served basis! (Pre-payment is required)
