Almost all local schools enter art work done by their pupils.  This is displayed during the Annual Exhibition, in the Alton Assembly Rooms.  If you wish to enter work and have not received information for the current year, please email the Society through the "contact us" page and we will send out the details to you. 

 Work is judged by an Art Society member and prizes are awarded to winners in age groups, starting with pre-school pupils.  The prizes were sponsored by Alton Town Council in 2015 & 2013; in 2014 a private donation assisted in the provision of prizes; sponsored by Waitrose in 2012, and previously either by East Hants District Council, Alton Town Council, or the Art Society itself. 

The Prize giving in 2017, sponsored by Alton Town Council, will be at 11am 14th October.
