About Us

Chertsey Artists is a Surrey-based art society running multi media workshops, courses and sessions for artists in the local and wider community.

Running from Chertsey, this well-established creative collaborative provides:

Life and Portrait drawing
Regular drop-in life and portrait sessions are held in Chertsey.

For details click on ‘Art Sessions’ on this page’s header.

Club
The Chertsey Artists club has more than 90 members, who can take part in all the activities – talks, demonstrations, workshops, printing, life and portrait drawing. Exhibitions of members’ work are held twice a year. See some of their work on the artists’ profiles pages.

Print Room
Regular print workshops are held on Friday afternoons. All material, such as press, inks and paper, are available. These workshops are untutored, but help is always available for beginners. The Print Room is available for hire at other times by printmakers for monoprinting, collagraphs and so on.

Tutored workshops
From time to time we hold tutored workshops, which have covered such subjects as batik, monoprinting, watercolour, collage, collagraphs, drypoint etching, oil printing techniques, mixed media, colour, pastel, paper making and bookbinding.

Exhibitions
Chertsey Artists holds Members Exhibitions twice a year in our gallery which has an eye-catching and attractive street frontage. Read more about the Gallery here.

Studios
We have nine studios on the Chertsey premises, which are rented out to professional artists.
