About applying for membership

Applicants are required to submit FOUR ORIGINAL WORKS in support of their application for membership which will be considered by the LSA Council at Crown Hills Community College, Gwendolen Road, Leicester, LE5 5FT on a date to be confirmed in 2018. You should provide recent works, which must be of an equally high standard. Work must 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). 

We accept original paintings, drawings, original artist's prints, mixed media and sculpture and most other media. Photography is considered where this is the original form of the artwork. You will need to leave your work with us for several hours at Crown Hills Community College and collect it later the same day. The decision of the Council of the Society is final and will be given in writing when you collect your work.
