This friendly Society looks forward to celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2020. It exists to encourage the appreciation and practice of the visual arts in the Lichfield area by providing opportunities for local artists of all ability levels to meet, develop their skills and exhibit their artwork.

Members work in a wide range of artistic mediums that includes painting in oils, watercolours and acrylics, drawing with pencils and pastels, mixed media, print-making, creating digital artwork and making three-dimensional objects in wood, clay, glass, stone, metal and fabric.

What we do.


On the second Wednesday of each month, guest professional artists demonstrate their skill in different mediums, share useful tips and answer members’ questions.

Painting Evenings

On the fourth Wednesday of each month, members get together to draw and paint, discuss their latest activities and share their progress in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.


Under the guidance of an experienced artist, members meet for all-day practical sessions to develop their techniques in a range of chosen subjects and mediums.


Visits to exhibitions, festivals and museums outside the Lichfield area enable members to experience some of the country’s most interesting and important art collections.

The historic city of Lichfield and its environs provide inspiration for a thriving art community.

Our partners in the community: We work closely with other art societies, local voluntary organisations, charities, civic bodies, eduction establishments and public service organisations to the mutual benefit of our Society and the wider community. Taking advantage of opportunities to share facilities and exhibit our artwork in public gives us pleasure and the opportunity to support the important work they do. We gratefully acknowledge the external funding assistance we have received to support our Society’s contributions to the cultural life of the City of Lichfield and the Staffordshire area.
