Welcome to Reading University’s Fine Art Society, or RUFAS!
RUFAS aims to bring together students from all disciplines and year groups through a shared passion of art.
Some events you should expect when joining our society:
• Life drawing classes organised by the society. You have the chance to give modelling a go too, if you're brave enough! Email us for details.
• Socials throughout each term, including themed nights out to the Student's Union, and more laid-back nights in Reading's best bars and pubs.
• The RUFAS Forum, an event we will regularly hold where we can discuss, debate and research whatever art related issue you vote on. Bring along books, music, films, art works and we will talk all about it over some cheese and wine***. These regular meetings will also give our members the opporunity to contribute further to shape RUFAS into what you want it to be. We are always open to new ideas!
• Film screenings where we vote on a showing! From video art, artist biopics, documentaries to any other art-related media
• Workshops where you learn new techniques and brush up on some familiar methods. Have your say in what we focus on!
• Exhibition opportunities! We will always let our members know when there may be the chance for them to showcase their work or any competitions that we know of
• Trips to exhibitions and talks around the country. Our previous locations include Berlin, Brussels and Prague!
***expect lots of cheese and wine at pretty much any event we hold
