A POSITIVE FUTURE FOR EVENTS IN 2021/22 AND COVID -19

Frequent online Committee meetings have been held in preparation for a brighter future whilst continuing to assess ongoing developments as Government restrictions allow. The Society aims to hold the annual summer exhibition from 28th July to 31st July. A full programme of membership activities for the 2021-2022 season has been established.
Do therefore watch out for announcements here on the WEBSITE, in PRISM, and in 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 website will give you a flavour of what we are, and feel free to look at our membership details here.
