Important Information

Due to Coronavirus/Covid-19 we are cancelling the Thursday workshops from 19th March until further notice. 

We are also cancelling the demo on 31st March.

Art Group Sessions

Most Thursdays (in term time), a group of Society members meet to paint and draw in any medium.  

These sessions are held in Becket Hall, Oyster Street, behind St. Thomas Cathedral, Old Portsmouth. 

Painting with others can provide the incentive to get started and to continue with painting. The environment also encourages sharing of information and ideas between members. Additionally, we have an excellent library of art books.

Members may attend for the whole day (9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.) or choose between the morning (9:30 a.m. to 12 noon) and afternoon (12 noon to 2:30 p.m.) sessions. Doors open at 9am. 

Members may choose to pay for the whole term or simply pay a 'drop-in' fee for sessions attended. Fees are £68 per term for a full day, £34 per term for a half day and £4 per half day or £7 all day for drop-in members.

Professional presentation of work is emphasised in the Society and advice and help are always available in the sessions.

The Thursday sessions follow school term times.
