Welcome to St Albans Art Society!

Our history can be traced for well over a century, and we are proud to contribute and play a role in the historical life of this cathedral city and district. We bring together people who share a deep interest in art, its history and its influence, but above all our mission is the encouragement of artistic development, whether you are an absolute beginner or an experienced artist keen to advance your skills even further.

We hold workshops and life drawing sessions within a friendly atmosphere, as well as inviting professional artists to visit us and demonstrate their skills in all media. See our programme. We are proud to hold a renowned exhibition of the work of our members each summer, which we describe as our flagship event.

New and existing members are warmly welcomed!


Membership renewal fees for the new year are due 1 October, but we welcome new members throughout the year. Now is a great time to join! Please complete the renewal form on the membership page and pay for your annual membership via bank transfer.
