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. We will have a live model in and lots of different materials for you to draw with. If you want to give modelling a go, just let us know. If that's not tempting enough, we offer a selection of the finest wines and cheeses that we could find in Co-Op.

• Socials throughout each term, including themed nights out to the Student's Union, plus laid-back nights in Reading's best bars and pubs.

• 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 Oxford, London, even Prague!
