We also provide courses to develop members skills and run interest groups to encourage
active practice, participation and self-help.
We have three main exhibitions a year for the display and sale of members work, the
largest being the Annual Exhibition in August. We encourage young artists by awarding
our Young Artists Prize at this exhibition. Close links are also maintained with
other groups in the community.
Where do we meet?
The Helensburgh Sailing Club on West Clyde Street is the venue for our Thursday evening
programme of demonstrations, lectures and workshops. This beautiful location looking
across the Gareloch to Rosneath is in itself an inspiration to all aspiring artists.
If you would like to join the club check out our Join Us page where you can find
an application form and related information.
Helensburgh Art Club was founded to encourage and develop interest in the visual
arts and crafts in Helensburgh and District.
We currently have about 250 members who range from total beginners to experienced
artists with wide ranging portfolios for painting, drawing and sculpture. Many members
just enjoy our programme of lectures and demonstrations.
