Thank you for visiting the Dorking Group of Artists’ website

 

We hope you find our website informative. We always welcome new members with the new ideas, skills and inspiration that they bring to what is already a progressive, forward thinking Art Group.

Our Winter Programme finished before Easter, so I would like to thank on your behalf the Winter Programme organisers, who  not only prepared a brilliant programme for everyone to enjoy, but also had to handle the sudden change of venue half way through the session due to unforeseen circumstances with the refurbishment at Beare Green. So thanks to Patsy, Helen, Annette and Hilary for their quick thinking in reorganising the Tuesday afternoon venue!

 

I 'd like to thank the Summer Programme organiser, Hazel Macartney, who has put together another series of fantastic places this summer. Our first 'en plein air' session of the Summer Programme was today among the bluebells in Hornshill Wood, a wonderful, enjoyable afternoon, when we produced some lovely sketchbook drawings and paintings, inspiration for working on new work at home. If you've never tried drawing and painting in different venues, come and join us to get some experience! You can see how other members tackle the complexity of working outside, get some hints and tips about useful tools and equipment, and generally get some often much needed encouragement to try something new.

 
Our next exhibition of new and original artwork will be held at Denbies Wine Estate, from Friday 2nd October to Sunday 4th October 2015.
