What is an art society?
An art society is a group of creative people who come together to explore and celebrate art! Members share knowledge, learn new skills and meet like-minded people.
What are the benefits?
You’ll get 10% discount at The Deckle Edge! (T&Cs apply)
Just bring along proof of current membership. To shop online, use discount code SOCIETIES2022 at checkout.
Other benefits could include exhibitions of members’ work, lectures on interesting topics, exclusive access to events or resources, workshops on new techniques and more. Each society offers different benefits, so ask around before you sign up.
You become a member by signing up with your preferred art society, often by paying an annual membership fee. The fees vary from society to society and generally they are very reasonable, especially if you consider the year-round 10% discount on art supplies and access to other benefits.
