Warwickshire Open Studios is a not-for-profit organisation run by local artist and art-loving volunteers for the benefit of our registered artists. We support a number of creative opportunities throughout the year with our main event, Summer Art Weeks, taking place from 17 June to 2 July 2023.
Involvement with WOS is designed to develop stronger links between artists in and around Warwickshire and Coventry. Our main focus is the Summer Art Weeks, but we also provide access to networking events and advice / guidance to support your practice. You must take out artists registration to be involved with our events (except for the Plein Air event).
As a true celebration of the variety and quality of visual art available locally, Summer Art Weeks is open to all – from passionate amateurs to professional artists, across all mediums.
Sign-up for entering WOS Summer Art Weeks 2023 will open in early December.
CONNECT was a new service launched for the 2022 Summer Art Weeks to help artists find venues and venues find artists; is now open for the 2023 event so sign up now if you need support in finding a venue.
Finding your place in the creative arena can be a real challenge – irrespective of whether you are emerging from tertiary education with a new art degree or making a lifestyle change from the safety of employment.
History shows that taking part in WOS Summer Art Weeks can be an essential catalyst and fantastic support network for the journey to becoming an artist.
Four artists will be selected to receive the bursaries of £250 to enable them to get involved with Summer Art Weeks 2023. Applications for the bursaries is now open.
