Poole & East Dorset Art Society
Poole & East Dorset Art Society is a long established and very active local art society. We were founded in 1924 and count notable figures such as Augustus John and Henry Lamb amongst our past members.

PEDAS is an inclusive society and welcomes artists in all media genres - figurative and abstract painters, sculptors, felters, embroiderers, photographers and installation artists.
Thursday sessions
Thursday 21st June:
SHELL BAY
BH19 3BA
10 - 4pm
Beautiful headland, heather walks and white sandy beach to explore. I suggest you cross on the Sandbanks ferry as a foot passenger, having hopefully found a space in Panorama Road to park. When you get off the ferry, go to the right of the restaurant where it is quieter and there are views of Brownsea and Poole Harbour. There is a small National Trust carpark if you want to drive. Free to members when you scan your card. 5 min walk to Shell Bay/ beach along a board walk. Toilet facilities available
Future Thursday sessions
Caroline's "Creative Sundays" are held at the Church of the Holy Angels Hall in Lilliput Rd, Poole BH14 8JX, usually on the 1st Sunday of the month. The Hall opens at 2pm to start at 2.30pm until 4.30pm with a tea break.
£3 for members £5 for non-members
1st July​ ​​

DORSET COUNTRYSIDE

A workshop using mixed media. Margaret is a very active artist and has had paintings hung in the Mall Galleries, Westminster Hall, Southampton City Art Gallery and many varied exhibitions. Her work is mostly in acrylics and mixed media with an emphasis on abstract, modern and landscapes.

Dear Friends and Members
I have managed the Club's Sunday Sessions for five years and it is now time for me to retire from this event as from the end of this year. I will therefore not be devising the Sunday Sessions for 2019. If you would like to offer your time to the club in this very worthwhile event please contact either myself by e mail address tac10kle@btinternet.com or another member of the Committee.
When I took over this session from Barbara Woods, I had no experience in arranging such an events but with her guidance all went well. I will provide a suggested timetable and details of the speakers I have had over the years. It is very rewarding and you have the opportunity to meet other local artists all with varying experience in different media.
