Alresford Art Society


We are a thriving society of 170 members, most of whom are active in painting or sculpture. Established in 1964, our aim is to inform, promote and encourage Art in and around Alresford.

We hold monthly meetings from September to June and four outdoor painting days at venues around Hampshire in the summer. The meetings are varied in content with demonstrators in all mediums; speakers on various aspects of art, and members meetings involving group activities, such as life drawing. We hold at least four workshops in the winter months with tutors in watercolour, oil, acrylic, pastel or specialised subjects.

The Society runs daytime and evening classes, which are open to all, to help budding artists improve their painting techniques, as well as life and portrait classes for members.

The Society holds an Annual Exhibition in the Alresford Community Centre every summer that is open to all members regardless of ability; a running exhibition that is changed every three months in the Alresford Surgery, and the Alresford Recreation Centre (ARC).

Our email address is [email protected] and we appreciate it if members who are on the net could let us have their email address so that we can send all relevant information out in that way.
