About Us


Bishops Stortford Art Society has members with a range of talent, working in watercolour, oils, acrylic, pastel etc, with a variety of subjects. Beginners welcome.

 We meet on alternate Thursday evenings during the Autumn and Spring terms at Thorn Grove Primary School. 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 us to sketch or paint a model or a still life subject.

 During the summer months a series of outdoor sketching or painting afternoons are arranged in the surrounding area. There are occasional evening sessions at Thorn Grove school.

The Annual Exhibition where most of the pictures are for sale, gives an opportunity to show and sell our work.

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

If you wish to join, our subscription rate is £20 per year and there is a small attendance charge which helps to cover the cost of room hire, demonstrators and models.
