The Caterham Art Group is a society of amateur and professional artists drawn from Caterham and the surrounding area in Surrey.The society is over 50 years old and currently boast its highest ever membership of almost 100. It is open to practising artists who work in all the popular media - watercolour, pastels, acrylics, oils, mixed media, scraper board, linocut, and collage - and those with an interest in and a love of art. Beginners are very welcome.
The group meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm when we have demonstrations by professional artists, the occasional mini-workshop, and informal painting sessions and in December there is a Christmas social.
A sketching group meets during the summer on a monthly basis at various venues in London, Surrey and Kent. We also hold two Saturday workshops and arrange visits to art galleries and exhibitions.
The highlight of the year is our annual exhibition, in 2016 it is the 64th,when around 160 paintings will be on view.
We always welcome new members regardless of artistic ability who are interested in the Group’s aims and are willing to take part fully in the Group’s activities.
Visitors are also welcome, there is a small charge - currently it is £4.
We also run a Friends of Caterham Art Group, many of whom attend our monthly demonstrations. Membership of the FCAG is free but there is a £4 visitors fee for the monthly demonstrations.
