Nairn art society was founded for artists and people who love to be creative in Nairnshire and the surrounding area. We currently have 70 members ranging from 16 to sshhh ! The society owns its own art studio situated on King Street in Laing Hall. Although many members paint at home, the structured workshops and daily sessions offer support and guidance from fellow peers. Painting and drawing in all mediums and styles is undertaken and the studio provides a friendly atmosphere to all who create their artwork within.
All members pay an annual fee of £30 and each class costs £2 (mainly to cover costs of tea/coffee & electricity.) If you are new, you are welcome to have a few taster sessions to decide if its something you would enjoy. Equipment,brushes, canvases etc. are available to use and a wide selection of books for reference, to borrow and to buy.
Workshops are arranged throughout the year for tutorials with professional artists. (These workshops incur a separate charge usually £25 ) These are very popular and encourage everyone to try something different and learn new techniques. Upcoming workshops and exhibitions will be advertised on the noticeboard in Laing Hall and our Facebook Page.
Exhibitions of our members work are held throughout the year, either in Laing Hall, Games Day, Nairn Community Cenre and we pop up now and again to support local
