About the Society Button


Founded in 1994 by Norman Sims the Birstall and District Art Society is a friendly organisation of people who like to draw and paint.

The Birstall & District Art Society has been a godsend to me! When I joined I had never done any painting before, now I am gaining more confidence with each demonstration and class.

Keep up the good work!

Come and share your love of all things art with us.
