Join the FPAA

The value of being a member of the Fellowship of Professional and Amateur Artists is greater than you might think. You become part of a friendly and enthusiastic community who all share a common and deep interest in art - whatever form it takes.

It is more than an art society - which is why we call it a fellowship.
