Venue:

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 £1 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 (except any Demonstrations). 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.

 

Demonstrations 

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.

 

Art on Mondays 

All DAC “Art on Mondays” meetings are from 7.00 – 9.00 pm at Fordington Hill House Meeting Room, which is opposite the road sign “Moule Terrace” at the top of Fordington High Street. Go to the 2nd entrance on the right-hand building.Tea/coffee and biscuits on arrival. No charge. There are no set subjects for these sessions, so bring your own projects to work on. PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NO PARKING ON SITE.

 

In-House Workshops:

The session organiser will introduce particular genres, techniques, media and approaches, giving guidance and answering questions as you work. They will encourage you in your skills and techniques, and in exploring new ways of working.

New members are always welcome!
