Welcome To The Old Coulsdon Art Society

OCAS is the only group that we are aware of in the area, which meets regularly for practical, hands-on art practice. Anyone can join; all abilities, all styles and all media are welcome. There is NO assessment committee.

OCAS also has formal class instruction. Each week, 2 artists/tutors guide and teach at each session on a one-to-one basis, as they move around the group. The emphasis is on fellow amateur and aspiring artists having somewhere to go to practise their art, supported and encouraged by like-minded friends. All of our Tutors are working artists of an excellent standard.

There is a Portrait Model, sitting for 3 or 4 consecutive weeks, and also a weekly Still Life set-up. Alternatively, simply ‘do your own thing’.

“A friendly group,with a model each week and support from 2 teachers” says Sue
