Covid-19 continues to disrupt all of the  Society's  activities, including the planned annual general meeting on 5th May. The Committee, which continues to meet online, is carefully monitoring the situation. In the meantime, provided Government restrictions allow, there is a possibility that the annual summer exhibition could take place from 26th July to 1st August. But the word 'possibility' must be stressed. Announcements will also appear in PRISM and the NEWSLETTER.

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.
