Virtual TAS

On behalf of all the committee I would like to send you our best wishes and hope that you are all keeping safe at this difficult time. We are keen to keep all our members well informed and be able to provide opportunities to keep the society functioning. Art can be a very therapeutic pastime.

One new activity will be a virtual exhibition each month, which will be undertaken via our Teignmouth Art Society Facebook page and linked with our website Up to 2 pieces of original artwork can be submitted. Members and non-members can vote for their favourite picture by clicking on the ‘like’ button. The work with the most ‘likes’ by 2pm on the last day of the month will be awarded Best Artwork of the Month. It will also help to raise the profile of our talented individual artists. 

Themes for each month, using any medium, including 3D artwork:

April: Marine 

May: Still Life – any subject

June: Landscape 

Suggestions for our newsletter to Sarah at or 0775 1795188.

If you are not on the internet family or friends could post your artwork to be entered into the competitions (Sarah is happy to explain over the phone). Others are setting up WhatsApp groups through their mobile phone, meaning you can then send texts, photos and even video chat.
