Weekly and Regular Activities The Society of Artists Newcastle Inc has its own premises which means that members have a venue where they can meet in a social setting to paint together, share ideas and gather information. There are up to seven social art groups during the week in addition to Portrait Painters, Life Drawing, Plein Air and Urban Sketchers. There are also weekday and weekend workshops. To enquire about our social art activities, contact the Art Director Ann-Maree Kelly 0417261891 or email Kelly.email@example.com so that we can find the right match for you and put you in touch with the relevant group convenor. All attendees at activities in the rooms need to become members after a trial period of maximum of two sessions. For each social art session members pay a $5 fee which is used to service the rooms and includes tea/ coffee and biscuits as well as the ability to borrow from our extensive library.
