Chandlers Ford Art Group was founded in 1969 and has approximately 140 members.

The group welcomes beginners to more accomplished artists, working in a variety of media.

We meet monthly in the large hall at the Community Centre, (also signposted ‘The Ritchie Hall’) near St Boniface Church, in Hursley Road, Chandlers Ford, SO53 2FT. We meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month (except August and December) at 7.30pm. Visitors are most welcome (£5 fee).

Monthly meetings usually include a demonstration and/or illustrated talk by a professional artist. Most months we have a themed painting competition for members, from which our speaker is asked to choose a favourite. The artist is then presented with a small prize!

During the winter months we hold monthly drop-in sessions (Fridays), workshops (Saturdays), and untutored life sessions (Sundays).

An Exhibition is held annually, usually coinciding with the Hampshire Open Studios Trail.
