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 our tutor moves around the group assisting and guiding us. The emphasis is on fellow amateur and aspiring artists having somewhere to go to practise their art, supported and encouraged by like-minded friends. Our Tutor is a working artist of an excellent standard.

There is a Portrait Model, sitting for 3 or 4 consecutive weeks or simply ‘do your own thing’.

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