Cello Practice by Claire Sparkes ASGFA

The Society of Graphic Fine Art is the only national society in the UK dedicated exclusively to drawing.

Founded in 1919, the Society promotes fine drawing skills in both traditional and contemporary media. Today there are more than 120 elected members of the Society across the UK. We're professional artists from all areas of the art world who work in all drawing and printmaking media. 

The Society is funded solely by members' subscriptions and is governed by an elected Council which meets regularly to administer its affairs.
