Welcome to WOKAS

The Weald of Kent Art Society is a fun, vibrant and friendly group of enthusiasts of all ages and artistic levels. 
We embrace art in all its forms and have demonstrations and talks, members' painting sessions and painting days out, as well as exhibitions. Throughout May 2021 we ran the online Art Unlocked 2 exhibition
This website is where members can share some of their art and provides information about current and future events. 
Non-members are very welcome to browse this website to find out more about the society and its artists. 
We hope you like what you see and are tempted to join us via the membership page.

Winter Exhibition December 2019

This was our last exhibition at Zion Baptist Church, but by no means the least.

 

The variety and quality of works on display was much appreciated by visitors. See more on the exhibition page, where you can also find photos of the exhibits and best picture voting results.

The WOKAS Chairman's Prizes were awarded to students studying art at Cranbrook School - the standard of work was exceptional. It was very difficult to pick a winner but it was Clara Franke's huge and emotive drawing that just pipped the runners up to the post.
