All DAC Thursday meetings are from 2.00 – 4.00 pm. at the St George's Hall, Fordington High Street, Dorchester.

Enter via the narrow driveway to the left of the Church tower and bear right. Parking is free.


Full membership is paid annually, click here to see how to join. Membership subscriptions cover the cost of running the club, hiring the Hall and various admin.

There is a £2 charge per meeting for members to cover the cost of the refreshments and for visitors who would like a “taster” meeting before joining the Dorchester Art Club. The charge includes coffee/tea and (usually) chocolate biscuits.

Bring drawing/painting things to all meetings. Subjects are chosen and items may be provided but no particular guidance is given. For items that you might need to bring, see the right-hand column on the chart for the particular meeting. You can bring your own sketches/photos/materials and work in whatever way you like. You can, of course, bring work to do other than the topic set AND ENJOY THE COMPANY WHILE YOU PAINT AND DRAW.



Visitors are most welcome to come to demonstrations and talks by visiting artists, so do please bring your friends. An experienced artist is invited to show how they interpret, paint or draw a subject, while you sit back and watch. The visiting artists are paid so there is a small charge to attend - £3 for members and £5 for visitors.
