Welcome to the nepean art society website
The Nepean Art Society was officially formed in 1967 by a small group of dedicated people. The enthusiasm of the current members continues.
Our aim is to provide a friendly environment where local artists can meet to learn, practise and exhibit their work.
The Society offers a variety of teachers, classes and demonstrations. Exhibitions are held twice a year to showcase and sell members' work.
We have over 100 members and welcome new members. Join us!

DEMONSTRATIONS COMING UP
Our next demonstration will be held on Saturday July 14th 2018.
Demonstration July 14thThe Nepean Art Society feels very fortunate and pleased that our next demonstrator Richard Chao has agreed to demonstrate his skills for us. Richard has been highly acclaimed in many countries and has excellent credentials. We look forward to his demonstration. Richard Tiejun Chao is a Sydney-based watercolourist. He has an M.A. in Oil Painting and is a Master member of the International Watercolour Society.
What is exciting for him is to apply realistic technique to experiment with the possibility of watercolour in depicting the subject’s innermost being. His subjects are mainly the common people in life. However, every one of them is a manifestation of their own cultural background, religious beliefs and life experiences. They are from all walks of life, living in different corners of the world.
Achievements in last 3 years:
It will be a demonstration on portrait painting and will take 1.5-2 hours.
