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 - the most recent being the online 2020 summer Art Unlocked 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.

An opportunity to get involved
At the AGM the issue of finding a replacement Treasurer for Pat Lock was discussed. Pat wishes to take a less active role after many years of much appreciated service.
A replacement has no yet come forward to take on this important, but not too onerous, role. This is a wonderful chance to get more involved so, please consider if it's something you could do.
Contact us if you think you can help.
Painting Workout 2020
During the isolated summer we ran several painting workouts where members had two weeks to produce a piece of art to a specific theme ranging from 'Gardens' to 'Self portraits' to 'Abstract'.
There was a fantastic response with over 90 pictures across the 8 challenges that may all be seen from the Painting Workout 2020 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.
