celebrating 150 years

The Liver Sketching Club celebrates its 150th anniversary this year. It was founded on 11 May 1872 in Liverpool and has been continuously active on the city ever since, making it the oldest art club in England. It still thrives today with around 100 members who attend any of the 40 classes in the studio every month – more than one each day.

This significant milestone will be marked with many special events as shown below.

 

In addition, two more events are still to be confirmed and a short film about the club is being made for YouTube.
