The Sutton Coldfield Society of Artists was formed in 1947 to encourage painting as a recreation in Sutton Coldfield. The Society has now grown to over 150 members and has established itself as one of the principle art societies in the Midlands providing a focus for artists of all abilities to learn, practise and develop their artistic skills.

The Society organises a programme of monthly art tutorial demonstrations and workshops by professional artists held on a Saturday at Mere Green Community Centre. Informal Sunday painting days are also held monthly at the Mere Green Community Centre, Sutton Coldfield where members meet to socialise, paint from still life and from a live model. In addition, various painting days at outside venues are arranged during the summer months and trips to the London galleries are a yearly event.

Exhibitions of members work are the focal point for the Society and these are currently held each Spring and Autumn at the Sutton Coldfield Town Hall for ten days. Entries are selected to ensure a high standard and various awards are presented for best paintings and craft work. Exhibitions are well attended by the public and have become a popular event on the social calendar.
