As sessions at Dupont have been suspended we have asked our two Tutors to design and produce video art lessons.

We have established a Dupont YouTube page so we can post the videos where they can easily be seen.

You can watch them right through or just look at part each day.

Each video has a title so you can select the video you want to watch.

New videos will be put on our YouTube page over the next few weeks.

So please keep checking

Dupont to Temporarily Close and go ONLINE!

We have been reading the Government instructions and recommendation regarding Covid-19 and the actions organizations should take. Having listened also to comments from members, we have decided the time has come to close the club with immediate effect.

We do this reluctantly as we know many members see their time at Dupont as an important part of their week.

Not knowing how long the situation will last, and because we want to stay in touch with our members, we are looking at setting up “Dupont Art On-line” using our website. Our tutors are working on programmes and demonstrations which will be available to members, providing an ongoing link with Dupont. As soon as we have more information we will be in touch.

In the meantime, check out our posts
below from Carolyn’s demos and have a little practice with them.

Thank you for your support, please stay safe during this very difficult time.

BHAC Poster & Flyer Competition

Brighton and Hove Arts Council Art Show

22nd to 25th April 2020

Once again we are looking for two pictures to use in the publicity for the Art Show.

One picture will be used on the oyster and flyer and in our Social media activities, the other on the Private view flyer.

This is a very important part of the  publicity so this year there will be a bottle of champagne for the two artists who are selected. Those will be presented to the Private View.

All Dupont Members are invited to take part.

Pictures should be sent to as soon as possible. The closing date is Monday 3rd February.

The two winners will be selected by the entire Exective Committee of BHAC.This usually takes quite a while, and as everyone seems to have a favourite picture, it usually ends by taking a vote.

We encourage all of our members to get involved with this.
