Our Society is one of the longest established in North Lincolnshire, having been formed in 1941 by 6 friends from the Art School in Silver Street, Grimsby, to enable them to pursue their artistic talents in a friendly and informal environment, something we strongly maintain today. This group was the nucleus of our Society, which became known as the 'North Lincs Art Society'. The Society boasts a healthy membership, including artists of all abilities from a wide area including Scunthorpe and Louth. The aim of the Society is to inform and encourage it's members through the many activities arranged throughout the year.
Activities can vary from year to year, but are arranged to include social sessions where members are able to enjoy a few hours painting in the medium and subject of their choice and the less experienced can benefit from tips and guidance from more established artists. Outdoor painting days are also arranged during the warmer months, where the delights of painting and sketching outside are experienced. Workshops and demonstrations are also arranged throughout the year and have included Ron Ranson, Ashley Jackson, Bryan Ryder, Rob Brindley, Terry Harrison, Roy Lang, Robert Wareing, Jill Carter and Vic Bearcroft, who have all encouraged us in their own medium, be it oils, watercolour, acrylics or pastels.
