Information for applicants

You are required to submit FOUR ORIGINAL WORKS in support of your application for membership which will be considered by the LSA Council at Crown Hills Community College in Leicester on a date to be announced in 2019.

Your FOUR original recent works must be of an equally high standard, and be well presented, suitable for an exhibition.

You may also, if you wish, submit a sketchbook (optional), a short CV and/or an artist's statement (optional) and up to four preliminary studies (optional). You will need to leave your work with us for several hours and collect it later the same day. The decision of the Council of the Society is final and will be given in writing by email, or a letter sent by post if you do not have an email address.
