The York Art Society has 10 Art Demonstrations each year.

Entry is free for members and £5 for guests.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, demonstrations usually take place on the second Saturday of the month at Christchurch Hall, Stockton Lane, York.  Demonstrations start at 2:00pm and last for approximately two hours with an interval for refreshments.  Depending on the subject, there is usually an opportunity to purchase prints or cards of the demonstrating artist's work or other items related to the theme of the day
