Driffield Art Club

Driffield Art Club, founded 1965

Driffield Art Club currently has over 130 members from Driffield and the surrounding area within the East Riding.

Driffield Art Club members meet monthly on the third Monday of every month (except August) at Westgarth Community Centre, Mill Street, Driffield.

The meetings consist of demonstrations on a wide variety of styles and media; lectures on artists and developments in art, and the club endeavours to hold one meeting during the year when a practising artist appraises Driffield Art Club members’ work.

Anyone with an interest in art, practising or not, is most welcome to come to a meeting as a visitor before joining Driffield Art Club.

Fees are currently £25 per year. Visitors pay £7 which is credited against the annual fee if you then join Driffield Art Club within one month.
