MKSA was formed in 1981 for local artists, both amateur and professional. We have around 100 members, showing a huge range of styles and techniques. We welcome absolute beginners - there is plenty of opportunity to learn and develop your style at our frequent workshops and painting days. We have regular meetings with demonstrations by professional artists and we have a permanent exhibition at a local cafe, where painting sales help to raise funds for charity. We also have several short-term exhibitions at various venues throughout the year. We have a Facebook Group which people can join without being members of the Society, to see news of our activities.
