The Friends of Putney School of Art & Design
The Friends of Putney School of Art & Design (“the Friends”) is an independent, registered charity run by volunteers to support and promote the school as a centre for high quality adult learning in the visual arts.
The Friends liaises with the School Management and with Enable to represent the interests of all enrolled students. Membership subscriptions, together with various art-focused fundraising activities, sales of work, etc., raise money to enhance the facilities in the school and help with bursaries.
Membership is open to all students of the School, past and present, and anyone in the community who loves the arts. The small annual membership fee includes free access to lectures and priority booking for workshops and masterclasses by outstanding speakers and tutors, run by the Friends, as well as an informative termly newsletter.
In addition, the Friends run art exhibitions, the Christmas Art & Craft Fair, and the various social gatherings connected with them. The Friends pride themselves on being an accessible and friendly organisation and look forward to welcoming you.
