The Aims of The Arts Society are: the advancement of arts education and appreciation, and the preservation of our artistic heritage and these are promoted by lectures on fine and decorative arts in their widest sense; through study days, visits and tours and the giving of grants. The Arts Society members who volunteer can learn new skills, make friends and benefit their communities. The main part of the Society’s activities is the lecture programme which can be seen by going to the 2017-8 Lecture programme on the menu above. The lecture programme explores the many facets of art and design covering an eclectic range of interests. The talks are presented by accomplished speakers who are experts on their subject and illustrate their presentations with high quality images.
In addition, there are visits arranged to various sites of interest during the year. For those who want some “hands on” involvement, there are a number of other activities including practical restoration work of books and some embroidery. This makes up our heritage programme.
Also look at the study days and events page for additional activities which may interest you plus the visits page which includes trips abroad. Membership is not essential for any of these although you should be a member of the central part of The Arts Society.
The Arts Society Nottingham also supports the involvement of young people with Young Arts and details of our activities are shown.
