List Of Art Groups & Art Societies

Looking to join an Art Group or Art Society?

Art Groups and Art Societies help to develop an artist’s skills and get them involved in Group Exhibitions to promote their art.  Art Group members meet up to get involved in workshops and demostrations as well as critiques.  To be part of an art community can be very inspirational and is a great way to exchange ideas and painting techniques amongst other artists.
