RQAS is the oldest and most influential Art Society in Queensland. It had its inaugural meeting in September 1887, and received the Royal Warrant in 1926.
The main role of the RQAS Inc. is to encourage and promote the cultivation and appreciation of the fine arts of painting, sculpture, architecture and the artistic crafts.
We aim to encourage the understanding and appreciation of art in all its forms among members and non-members with specific reference to activities, meetings and seminars designed to provide adequate coverage of relevant aspects.
Most of this State's leading artists have belonged to this Society and have been very active both within the Society as artists and teachers, and outside the Society with their contribution to the development of art at state, national, and in some cases, international level.
Various workshops, seminars and classes are carried out under the direction of established practicing artists and teachers - see the Workshops page for details.
