Welcome to the Somerton Group of Artists.

Are you interested in art? Why not join us!

Here you will find a very friendly local artists group from Somerton and the surrounding areas, Somerset, UK. We welcome all new members who are interested in art. You don’t even have to be a painter yourself to get involved – you may just want to meet other people with the same interests. We are well established and have around 60 members of all ages and abilities.

We hold a year round programme of talks and demonstrations by professional artists with occasional day-long workshops. We have ‘painting together’ sessions and outside painting and sketching sessions in the summer. These are usually held with somewhere for lunch or tea nearby! In the winter, some members also meet weekly in the Pinney Room, in the Parish Rooms ,Market Square Somerton , to paint together every Tuesday morning from 10am. to 1pm. 

We hold an annual exhibition of our work, and all members are invited to participate.

If you are interested, or have any questions, please contact us for a chat or just turn up to one of our events or sessions. You will be made very welcome!

A very interesting demo, and hands on experience!
Pip winter showed us how her approach to making needle felted pictures shared many considerations we apply to working with paint. She applies colour and texture in the form of dyed wools from variety of different breeds of sheep, silk and yak, which offer different textures when used in a landscape. Silk particularly, made brilliant ‘Water” cascading down a waterfall
The Iguana also used other media for effect. Then an opportunity to “try it for ourselves “ after Pip had made it seem effortless!
