About the society

Andover Art Society is an 'open' Society and welcomes new members. Members do not have to be practising artists, although most are.

The society arranges a varied program of events throughout the year, including workshops, demonstrations, painting and drawing evenings and days outside during the summer. We also have social evenings, lectures on art related topics and arrange exhibitions for our members. Any suggestions for activities are always welcome.

It is a friendly society where members are able to meet regularly and enjoy a common interest in art. Membership currently costs 20 per year plus 6 for each meeting you attend which is collected on the evening. If you would like to come along to an evening before joining you would be very welcome.  Most meetings are on a Thursday evening although whole day workshops are generally held on a Friday.

Further information is available by using the email facility on the 'Contact the society' page on this website or you can contact any of the committee members below by telephone.
