Cirencester Art Society is a group of local amateur artists that get together each month for lectures, demonstrations and workshops.

With over 50 members, the society is thriving but always open to newcomers, as member and publicity officer Mike Sykes explains.

“We’re a friendly and encouraging group, open to all local artists, of any level of experience, including beginners,” he said.

“The society meets monthly for lectures and demonstrations by professional and amateur artists, and visitors and guests are always welcome.”

Mike has lived in Cirencester since relocating from London in 2006.

He is a reasonably new member to the 25-year-old society, having joined in early 2019.

On painting, Mike said: “It’s an interest which was dormant for me, but since retiring I have found it a compelling and enjoyable activity.

“I found it a very open and welcoming group, and it’s great to meet regularly with new friends sharing an interest in painting.

“The programme of practical demonstrations and speakers is fascinating and we exhibit our artworks in Cirencester regularly. We also learn so much from each other – it stimulates you to keep painting the next challenge.”

The group meets at the Baptist Church on Chesterton Lane in Cirencester, and this month will be holding a talk by Joan Lyons on the use of acrylic medium, on Tuesday 24th March.

“In addition,” said Mike, “members can join an informal morning each Tuesday morning, where they can practice their skills and learn from each other.”
