Teignmouth Art Society was founded in 1948 with the aim of encouraging art in the Teignmouth area. The society is a non-profit making organisation with around 160 members, working in a variety of media.
Demonstrations by professional artists are held once a month on Friday evenings during the Autumn and Winter months, in the Teignmouth Heritage Centre, and on alternate weeks we have Wednesday afternoon workshops run by more experienced members in TAAG.
During the summer we meet in various locations for outdoor sketching days. Full day workshops are also held for us by professional artists. There are several social events such as the Christmas lunch. Guests are always welcome at any meeting.
We hold three exhibitions a year, the Spring and Summer Exhibitions being held in the Victoria Hall in Shaldon and the pre Christmas Affordable Art Fair in Teignmouth at TAAG. A miniature and portrait competition is held in the spring and awards are presented at the Summer Exhibition.
We welcome anyone interested in art, and membership is open to all on the payment of an annual subscription. Our own facebook page is full of up to date news and a newsletter informs members of forthcoming events. We are heavily involved in the Teignmouth Arts Quarter.
