Art: Ilkley Art Club

Article Index



We are hoping to re-start on Wednesday the 15th September. We hope you can come and join us, as a previous or future art club member.

The Ilkley Art Club, which was founded in 1909, will be meeting at a new time, hopefully, in September 2021, on a Wednesday afternoons, from 12.45-2.45pm, at the Clarke Foley Centre, Cunnliffe Road, Ilkley.

The Club welcomes as members people of any age who have an interest in art, whatever their level of technical competence. The current membership includes practising artists, both amateur and professional, as well as those who are interested in learning and developing skills. It is not a ‘teaching club’ or an ‘art course’ but members working together in practical sessions.

The Club organises lectures on a range of topics. Non-members can attend these lectures, the fee being £5 per visit. Details of the current lecture programme and practical sessions  are given below.

You are welcome to come along on any of our Wednesday's for a free "taster" session. 

The Club also holds exhibitions of members work. This year's main exhibition will be held from Saturday the 30th October to Monday the 17th January 2022 in the Clarke Foley Centre.

The annual subscription has not increased and costs £70 per year, to be paid in September, when the club has its first session.
