Membership And About Musselburgh Art Club

Dear All according to NHS guidelines, Musselburgh Art Club we fall into the vulnerable category, therefore it is with great regret that the Committee have decided that Musselburgh Art Club should CLOSE until further notice. Please note that the premises are now locked and the Gas and Electricity are switched off. We will inform you in due course when the Club will re- open.

Please follow us as we will announce on the website once we reopen.

The Club will not be open for new membership or for membership tours. during this time but please follow this or our website and we will advise when we are able to accept new members.

Please stay safe everyone.

The club was formed in 1969 and we have our own premises at Bridge Street in Musselburgh, just across the road from the main entrance to the Brunton Hall. We rent our building from East Lothian Council, and have the advantage of having access at any time, unlike many other clubs.

We normally welcome new members however the membership a has increased in recent years so it may be that a waiting list be used as required.

If you are thinking about membership, you can come along two or three times before joining to see the premises and facilities. You can bring some work along if you like, or just have a cup of coffee and a chat.

Normally on a Wednesday at around 11am there normally members of the commitee in the club and so if you wish to come along please do.
If you could email us on or via Facebook just to try to prevent if the case there is a scheduling conflict.

About the club

We are a small, friendly club of amateur artists. We are always happy to welcome kindred spirits of all abilities!

Membership fees for the club are currently £90 a year, running from September to August. New members pay a pro-rata amount. Your membership fee covers rent, utility bills and various other expenses.

For a nominal amount, members can also have a key to the clubhouse, so you can have access at any time you like, 7 days a week.

Club activities
Members gather at the clubhouse mainly on weekday mornings, and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday evenings. You can choose to draw, paint etc, or chat and drink coffee; some members bring their lunch with them if they feel like staying into the afternoon.

We occasionally arrange tutorials and crit nights when they are affordable. We do not have regular tuition, but members are always willing to give advice to each other (if wanted)!

Musselburgh Art Club is supported by a grant from East Lothian Council.

The club has many resources for use by members,


An extensive library of art books and DVDs
A mount cutter for framing
Advice when asked for!
