Welcome

Leighton Buzzard Art Society was founded 60 years ago and is still thriving with a membership of about 100. Full membership is open to any person aged 18 or over who is interested in art, practising or not, amateur or professional. Guests are welcome at all meetings on payment of an entry fee.

Our society’s core activity is centred on our monthly meetings which always feature a demonstration or talk by a professional artist. Our aim is to cover all areas of interest and different media, oils, watercolour, acrylics, pencil etc.

Meetings take place at 8pm on the third Thursday of each month, from September to May.

Our other activities include:

  • Saturday workshops, which are usually held in an art room at Cedars School, Linslade. Please check the venue details for each workshop.
  • Exhibitions

We are very grateful to Leighton-Linslade Arts Forum for their financial support to help develop this web site.

Venue

Meetings are currently held at Leighton Buzzard Day Centre situated between Westlands Old Peoples Home and the town car park at the end of Duncombe Drive which has free evening parking. The demonstration is projected on a large screen and a sound system ensures that everyone can hear. The room is spacious and comfortable and free tea and coffee are served in the interval. We have our own library of art centred DVDs, videos and books which members can borrow for a small fee.

Membership

Our membership year runs from September to August.
The annual fee for 2015-2016 is 27.
Non-member guests at meetings are asked to pay 6 per meeting, although we will occasionally charge more to help cover the costs of a more expensive demonstrator. Please check the information against each meeting in Diary Pages/Meetings.

Membership entitles you to a range of benefits:

  • Nine meetings a year, with demonstrations by a range of professional artists.
  • Enjoyable Saturday art workshops at a reduced rate.
  • The opportunity to show your work at any exhibitions or sales events that we organise, and to sell it if you wish.
  • Regular newsletters by email, providing up to date information.
  • Access to our library of DVDs and books, for a small fee.
