Isle of Wight Art Club members working hard and following social distancing protocols at the Riverside Centre, Newport.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Riverside for our first worshop on Tuesday 6th October 2020. There have been a lot of changes since we last met and you can download and print the Rules by clicking the PDF.

Covid-19 Precautions at the Riverside Centre for the IWAC Winter programme - revised in line with changes in Government regulations - effective from 24th September 2020.






Introduced by Carol Owen, our Chairman. Carol is a practicing, professional artist and fully qualified Art Teacher. If you want to ‘paint in company’ albeit at home and benefit from her expertise and receive a non-obligatory private appraisal of your work, all the details are in the email recently sent to you. "Sunflowers" is the first in a series of opportunities. OPEN to all Members.

In light of new Government regulations recently published concerning groups of people meeting outdoors being limited to a maximum of 6 people, the Council has reluctantly decided to cancel our two outdoor locations on the Summer Programme namely Godshill and Fort Victoria.

However, should members still wish to paint at these locations on the advertised dates, they are respectfully asked to strictly adhere to Covid Regulations, ie do not gather in a group of more than 6, and maintain social distancing at all times. It must be emphasised that you will be attending as an individual and not a member of IWAC.

The Military Museum venue has been cancelled outright.

At the time of writing, it looks highly likely that our Winter Programme will be viable at the Riverside, as they are Covid approved, and everything is in place for our safety up to 30 people in the Trafalgar Room and 12 in Hunnyhill.

In this very fluid situation, you will be kept informed by email and please check the website regularly for the latest news.
