The Leicester Sketch Club is one of Leicester's oldest art clubs. Despite the name, our members' main activity is painting in every possible medium.
The Club has over 120 members ranging from talented experienced full time artists to developing part time artists. Its aim is to help and encourage the artistic development of all its members work and develop their appreciation of art.
It meets on the first Wednesday of every month for a programme including demonstrations, talks and critiques and has a full schedule of workshops, indoor and outdoor sketching days and an annual exhibition.
Many of our events are open and free to non-members. It was awarded ‘Art Club of the Year 2016’ prize by The Artist and Leisure Painter.
Our Associate membership allows for inclusion of those with an interest in art but who may not necessarily be artists themselves.
Several of our members belong to nationally recognised bodies such as the Royal Institution of Water Colour Painters, 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 Galleries.
