Welcome to The Arts Society Truro

We are an art appreciation and conservation society affiliated to The Arts Society an international Society with over 98,000 members worldwide. 

We have regular lectures about a wide variety of the arts, music, and design subjects, given by outstanding experts who are carefully chosen by The Arts Society.  We also hold Discovery Days on subjects of special interest, organise visits and tours, and do conservation work in the Royal Cornwall Museum.

We feel keenly about young people being involved in art, in all its forms, and give support to local schools and colleges, who have a rich heritage of successfully developing Cornish students’ involvement in art.

Above all, we aim to have fun and learn at the same time!  We are a small and friendly Society and welcome new members at any time; we also enjoy meeting those who can only join us from time to time.

We hope you will enjoy looking through our activities, and that you will join us one day soon – we look forward to seeing you.
