Starting an art club gives your work the chance to be seen by others, which will help you to grow as an artist and will also give you a chance to mentor others.

What is an art club and why should you join one? Art club members learn the principles of art in a fun and social setting. They also get to meet new people and make new friends. Art clubs are a great place to get involved and meet new people, express yourself through art, and improve your skill level.
Art club members learn the principles of art in a fun and social setting. They also get to meet new people and make new friends. Art clubs are a great way for beginners to get started in their art hobby.
Art clubs are open to anyone who has an interest in developing their talent by learning the basics of drawing, painting, sculpting, jewelry making or photography. Some clubs focus on one specific medium while others offer a variety of classes that appeal to members with different interests.
Art clubs are open to everyone who enjoys creating beautiful artwork; there are no age limits or other requirements. New members can bring their own projects or work on projects provided by the instructor. A typical class involves instruction followed by hands-on practice with guidance from the instructor. You’ll be encouraged when your work looks good but you’ll also learn how to fix things when they go wrong.
Art club instructors come from all walks of life — they’re college professors,
Grayson Perry is a British artist and potter who was appointed Professor of sculpture at the Royal Academy of Arts in London in 2011.
Perry runs an art club with his regular collaborator, the ceramicist and designer John Fothergill. When they started their art club they had to consider what materials and tools they would need to buy and how many people they could have in the club.
The main expense was the cost of materials. They decided to buy a variety of paints, brushes and canvasses. They needed large sheets of canvas because that was what worked best for them as artists, and also because it saved on transport costs as they live in different parts of the country.
To begin with, they decided not to get any models, but instead to paint self-portraits. The reason for this was that models cost money; but more importantly, it gave them time to work out how to paint, how to use different types of paint, how to mix colours and so on. It’s better if you can decide what you want your painting style to be before you start buying lots of expensive models.
They then decided that some model sessions would be helpful, so had a couple of model sessions where each member could bring a model along. The members
Today we are taking a look at the art club. I’m Grayson Perry, guest blogger here on Creative Bloq, and I’m going to help you get started in your very own art club.
You may have seen me on The Apprentice back in 2008, where I tried to make some money out of my hobby. I didn’t make it to the final but my experience on the show really gave me a taste for what it is like to run your own business. Since then I’ve gone from strength to strength: my work sells well in galleries and at auction and you’ll often find me clutching a trophy that I’ve won for being ‘Britain’s Most Promising Artist’.
The most important thing about running an art club is that it isn’t just about creating great art. It’s also about friendship and community. Just like everything else in life, it requires compromise and consensus-building if you want things to run smoothly. And if you do run an art group, don’t forget that shared experiences are what bind people together – so be sure to hold regular dinners with your members, or discuss books you’ve read (see below) or even share recipes that they can try out at home.
Don’t try to be a dictator – instead share ideas with
Here are a few essential tips to get you started on the right foot.*Build Trust*
Art is a form of self-expression, and when someone lets you see inside their work, they’re trusting you with something very personal. Don’t betray that trust. In an art club, everyone’s ideas are valuable, no matter how crazy or weird they may seem. Be patient and encouraging with your fellow artists, as well as respectful of their time and thoughtfulness with their art.*Get Creative*
As an artist, there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing what you’ve made come alive in the hands of others. So don’t be afraid to get creative. Share your ideas about what to do with the art once it’s made—even if those ideas aren’t fully formed. Even if those ideas don’t seem that great at first. The main thing is to try something new!*Ask Questions*
It can be really intimidating to try something new—especially if it involves other people—so don’t be afraid to ask questions! You’ll learn more by talking openly about your feelings than you will by silently focusing on them (and potentially getting frustrated). If you’re feeling insecure or confused about something, make sure to voice it. You’ll find that
First is the question of the materials. Where to start? What do you need, and what are you going to be doing with them?
If you’re not art inclined, or maybe even if you are, then getting started can feel a little daunting. So I wanted to outline some things that we’ve done so far in our own art club for inspiration.
