The Victorian Artists Society is for all who love ART!
Looking for painting classes? Like attending art exhibitions or art auctions?
The Victorian Artists Society is for all who engage in and enjoy art. We are now taking enrolments for our regular painting classes in: oil, watercolour, pastels, mixed media, drawing plus sculpture. Classes are suited to levels from beginners to those wishing to extend their technique and creative expression.
2013 saw the announcement of our 40th VAS Artist of the Year – congratulations to Julian Bruere! Voting for this prestigious award in 2014 commences in April with the opening of the VAS Autumn Exhibition.
Art is exhibited continually throughout the year in our different gallery spaces. Our gallery spaces are available for hire to member and non member artists and art organisations.
Networking and community are also a valuable part of the Victorian Artists Society experience for artists, art lovers and collectors alike!
With a rich heritage dating back to 1870 we are proud of our contribution to the development of Australian art. With our view of the future framed by quality and versatility, our reputation for the development and promotion of art in the general community will live on.
Whether you are an art beginner looking for an opportunity to learn art skills or appreciation, a more practiced artist wanting to hone or develop new skills, or someone wishing to showcase or collect artworks, we would be delighted to assist you in your endeavours.
