A society for practising artists in all media

and all levels

Our Society is open to all artists whatever standard and including beginners.


 The Society aims to provide a relaxed and informal forum to foster and share a common interest in the history, theory and practical aspects of art.

CAS hosts evening meetings on the first Tuesday evening each month, with the exception of August and September. These meetings include lectures and demonstration evenings by established professional artists.

Additionally society members have the opportunity to meet one morning a week to enjoy creating their artwork in a friendly, supportive and sociable atmosphere.    Further details can be found online.



Visitors and guests are always welcome. A donation of £5 is usually requested.


Subscription for the year is currently £25 and attendance fee for each demonstration is £2. Refreshments are free.

This month's demonstration was by Lizet Dingeman's, Head of Art at Raw Umber Studios in Stroud. One of our members sat for Lizet to draw his portrait and the audience were thrilled to see how quickly just a few expertly placed marks looked like the sitter.
We all learnt a lot and found the lesson very interesting.
Our next meeting will be as usual on the first Tuesday of the month, October 3rd at 7pm at Cirencester Baptist Church, cost is £2 for members and £5 for non-members.

Social Evening




  A new group for Cirencester Art Society has been formed and that is an urban sketching group.


We meet on the first Sunday of every month (during the warmer months) outside  St John Baptist the main church in the centre of town, at 2pm. If its cold or wet we sketch inside, there's no shortage of beautiful ideas in this town!


Having said that we might meet up in different villages from time to time, sharing lifts if need be.



You don't need to book just come along,

We have now closed for the season and will start again in the Spring
