The Leicester Sketch Club was founded in 1898 and is one of Leicester's oldest art clubs. Despite its name, its members' main activity is painting in every possible medium.
Leicester Sketch Club has over 100 members ranging from professional full time artists to developing part time artists and aims to encourage the artistic development of each.
Several of our members belong to nationally recognised bodies such as the Royal Institution of Water Colour Painters (RI), the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA), and the Leicester Society of Artists. Many of them have exhibited their work at illustrious venues such as the Royal Academy, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the Royal West of England Academy and the Mall Gallery
The club meets on the first Wednesday of every month for a programme including demonstrations, talks and critiques. LSC has a full schedule of workshops, indoor and outdoor sketching days and an annual exhibition, visit the club's website for the full 2016 programme.
