Dorchester Art Club paint

Dorchester Art Club is a friendly group which welcomes artists, from absolute beginners to all levels of experience. Some members come regularly and some choose to dip in just for demonstrations and workshops. There are no critical judgements made, but assistance is freely shared if asked for. Newcomers are welcome to come to a “Taster” session for the general charge of £1, which includes refreshments. Please bring with you some basic art materials, such as paints, pen/pencils and paper. A newsletter is sent out 3or 4 times a year to keep members up to date with club activities.


The club meets for most of the year on Thursdays 2.00pm till 4.00pm except for the second week of the month. We meet in the St George’s Church Hall, Fordington. Turn in to a narrow driveway to the left of the Church Tower and bear right up the slope. There is ample free parking in front of the Hall.


Some members meet on Mondays 7.00pm till 9.00 at Fordington Hill House community room by kind permission of the management there. This is a free session where members can pursue their individual work in the company of others. All members are welcome up to 10 in number, which is the capacity of the room. Fordington Hill House is on the opposite side of the Church a little further down the road. There are no parking facilities.
