About the SAA

The SAA, is for everyone with a love of painting. We believe in encouraging everyone, from complete novices and hesitant beginners to the legions of leisure painters and beyond… but the best thing is – the way we make you feel… informed, encouraged, inspired… and so pleased with your results!

The SAA is here to supply inspiration, information, help and advice on a whole host of practical painting issues. The SAA is the most influential and far reaching community of its kind anywhere in the world… with an ever growing 'family' of enthusiastic and eager artists (over 38,000 members) it's the largest art community… and the friendliest!
