Sprout Art’s aim is to support artists and encourage local people of all ages and backgrounds to engage in creative activities and appreciate original art. Which is how we came up with our Community Art Loan initiative.
Thank you to everyone who took part in our Art Loan relaunch at The Living Room, in April.
It was great to see familiar faces as well as new people very excited to join the scheme, We would love to see a photograph of yourselves with your art loan, please tag us on on social media - @sproutarts on Twitter and facebook, @sprout_arts_london on Instagram.
Thank you again for your support and looking forward to the next event - scheduled for 27th July!
Membership can be taken out or renewed in advance by using the following link www.sproutarts.com/index.php/join-us
The idea of starting SproutArtLoans.com initiative is simple, people who are members of Sprout will be able to borrow an original work of art for four months and pay nothing, the artwork would then be available to someone else or could be bought.
The hope is that people who have never had original artwork in their homes will realise how wonderful it is and go on to become art enthusiasts and encourage their friends and neighbours too. Lending sessions will take place three times a year at various local venues and will allow Sprout members to borrow one artwork every four months, free of charge.
Visit our gallery to see what art is available to borrow and more about the artists - new artists and artworks will be added before every loan event
If you are an artist and would like to join the scheme or if you would like to borrow some art for your home or as a corporate member please check out our FAQ pages and get in touch.

April Art Loan event
It was wonderful to finally come out of Lockdown and relaunch with our first Art-Loan of 2021, which was at The Living Room on Thrale Road and we were delighted to see lots of new faces as well as new corporate member Taştê - this was our 8th Art-Loan event and it has been getting better every time!
There were over 70 artworks available. Read more about event on our news page HERE
Reopening Sprout with our summer ArtLoan event
Throughout lockdown Sprout Art gallery brightened up the neighbourhood with a wide range of art displayed in the windows by popular local artists.
We decided the first opening event should be our ArtLoan in Sprout Gallery at the end of June. Members were offered the option to roll-over their loan until the Autumn but there was a really great response with new pieces added and lots of new people becoming members.
February artLoan event
Our first Art-Loan of 2020 was at home, in Sprout Arts on Moyser Road and we were delighted to exhibit all the work available over a week - this was our 6th Art-Loan event and it has been getting better every time!
There were over 70 artworks available including sculptures. Read more about event on our news page HERE
Time & Leisure Awards nomination
We were delighted to be nominated for a Time & Leisure Food and Culture Award in the category 'Most Innovative Art Project'!
Thank you for voting for us, we didn't win but it was a great way to promote the art-loan scheme and all the wonderful work Sprout is doing.
