Every year we hold a wide ranging and fascinating programme of lectures, visits workshops and social events. Our members, many of whom are artists and craftspeople themselves, are interested in all the decorative and fine arts including painting, music, literature, furniture, mosaics, and architecture. We try and ensure that the programme has something of interest to everyone and with such a committed and enthusiastic membership there’s always something new and exciting going on!

Here in West Cornwall, we’re a relatively new society founded in 2011 . We do have some availability now for new members, so if you would like to become a member, click here for further information.

We still remain one of over 300 member societies of the ‘The Arts Society’  formerly  NADFAS – the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies.

The next lecture  will be on 11th October at Penwith College at 7.30pm.

Picasso and his Women     ‘Bring a Friend for Free’ tonight

Picasso’s emotional life influenced what he painted and how he painted it. The lecture concentrates on the seven most important women in his life (two of whom he married).

Please contact us here  with the name of your friend or send us an email to westcornwall@theartssociety.org  to arrange the free entrance.
