Downland Art Society

Open & Friendly Art Society

Downland art Society Walberton, near Arundel, West Sussex
Downland Art Society is an open and friendly club, based in the picturesque village of Walberton, near Arundel West Sussex. Our aim is to encourage a love of art and provide an opportunity for everyone to recognise and develop their individual talents.
Founded in 1944 we are still providing a forum for professional and amateur artists to come together.
We mount two exhibitions a year: one in spring and another one in late summer. These are held at the Norfolk Centre, a prime site just by Arundel Castle, and are always popular.
There are also occasional workshops with popular tutors which take place throughout the year. These cater for a wide variety of interests and provide some of the best value in tuition to be found in the area.
