Our next meeting at Thorn Grove School will be on the 20th June – Paul Talbot Greaves – Watercolour demo.


Membership is £20 per person (or £35 for couples at the same address). Students pay £10. The season is from the 1st April to the 31st March. Please note that due to the summer break, the subscription is not half-price until January. You just need to be 18 or over, and enjoy being creative – all abilities are welcome.

Bishop’s Stortford Art Society has members with a range of talent, working in watercolour, oils, acrylic, pastel etc, on a variety of subjects. Beginners are welcome.

We meet once or twice a month on a Thursday evening during term time at Thorn Grove Primary School,
Thorn Grove
Bishop’s Stortford
Herts. CM23 5LD

The entry door into the school is the one above the steps from the lower playground / carpark. The hall is then accessed via the double doors on the left.

The hall is open from 7.00 pm, with the meeting itself starting at 7.30 pm, and finishing at 9.30 pm.

See our Virtual Exhibition, for art works to buy.

There is a varied programme including working evenings, talks and demonstrations by practising artists. The demonstrators tell us about their painting methods as they work on their picture such as a portrait, landscape or still life. Working evenings allow you to sketch or paint on your own work, or on a still life subject.

During the summer months a series of outdoor sketching or painting afternoons are arranged in the surrounding area.

There is at least one public Exhibition a year, where pictures are for sale. This gives us an opportunity to show and sell our work.

If you are interested in painting or sketching, do come along to one of our meetings.

Entrance charges are £4 for members and £7 for visitors on demo evenings, and £3 for members and £5 for visitors on working evenings – which helps to cover the cost of room hire, demonstrators, etc.
