Announcement from our Chairman: "With the current coronavirus situation worsening, and having taken independent advice, I have come to the rapid conclusion that with immediate effect, all our meetings demonstrations, remaining workshop and life drawing classes are cancelled."

The AGM and our summer Exhibition have also now been cancelled.


We intend to re-arrange our AGM, together with a mini exhibition for our members, once lockdown restrictions ease sufficiently for us to hold one - so please keep an eye on our AGM Members' Gallery page...



Open to the public daily from Wednesday 31st July to Saturday 3rd August
Time: 10am to 6pm
Closed Sunday 4th August Morning
at Upper Dagnall Street Baptist Church Hall

We also have a Facebook page:

Here are the links to last year's exhibition gallery and prizewinners...
...and members, don't forget that you can send in photos of your
exhibition artwork for display in our 2019 online gallery (with further details on our exhibition here).

St Albans Art Society can trace back its history for well over a century and is 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 (full details given in our programme). And we are proud to hold a renowned exhibition of the work of our members each summer, which we describe as our flagship event.

We hope that this web site will give you a flavour of what we are, and feel free to look at our membership details here.
