About Us


Lisnagarvey Art Society aims to encourage anyone interested in developing their drawing and painting skills, and with demonstrations and tuition by visiting professional artists, members can explore a range of techniques. The programme includes still life, portraiture and landscape in a variety of media. As well as social events and gallery visits there is an opportunity to show work in the Society’s exhibitions.
