Ayr Art Circle
Ayr Art Circle, founded in 1944 is a club for artists based in Ayrshire. It is affiliated to Ayr Art Guild and currently there are some 45 members. The club is unique in that it owns a small studio in Ayr. Although many members paint at home, the workshop sessions in the studio stimulate discussion and provide very helpful support and advice. Members may use the studio at anytime and there are small groups who meet together on a regular basis throughout the year. Painting in all mediums and styles is undertaken and the studio space provides the opportunity to work in a companionable and friendly environment.
All members pay an annual subscription of £30 and a calendar of events is organised each year. This includes demonstrations by professional artists and crit nights at which members bring along their work for constructive and supportive comment by fellow artists. Non-members are very welcome to attend demonstrations which are usually held at Wellington School in order to accommodate larger numbers. A small charge is made to members and visitors at these events to help offset the costs involved. Members also have the opportunity to exhibit their work at least once in the year.
The club has applied for and received charitable status giving us the opportunity to expand our activities and we plan in the future to offer members more in the way of a variety of painting sessions. This year we operated our own life classes and portrait sessions at external venues which proved to be very popular.
