 The Society aims to provide a relaxed and informal forum to foster and share a common interest in the history, theory and practical aspects of art.

CAS hosts evening meetings on the first Tuesday evening each month, with the exception of August and September. These meetings include lectures and demonstration evenings by established professional artists.

Additionally society members have the opportunity to meet one morning a week to enjoy creating their artwork in a friendly, supportive and sociable atmosphere.    Further details can be found online.



Visitors and guests are always welcome. A donation of £5 is usually requested.

Mark Kelland


'Oil Painting Cheat'



Mark has run many classes and workshops in watercolour, pastels, painting and life drawing

over the last 15 years.

Starting as a tutor at Stroud College, he then decided to run his own classes, starting at Ruskin Mill, moving onto Friggs Mill, Rococo Gardens, Lansdown Road in Stroud, Painswick Mill and Randwick Village Hall.

Mark is known for his free approach to painting and drawing. He likes to have fun with colour and experiment with techniques, never wishing to stay still on one subject. Many reviews of his exhibitions have said “It’s like looking at many artists, not one.” 

Mark has a degree in fine art from Kingston Art College, and a further adult teaching certificate.


Visitors most welcome to join us and learn how to cheat!
