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 Long Load Village Hall to paint together.

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!


We are delighted to announce that we have organised a programme of activities for this summer and autumn and look forward to seeing all the members again.   

Next activity is a Painting Together Day on Saturday 31st July in the Somerton Parish Rooms.  This is an opportunity to ‘do your own thing’ or join a tutored still life workshop with Mandy McAllen exploring cubism. The day will run from 10am to 4pm, with Mandy’s workshop taking place from 10.15 to 12.30.  The fee for the day/workshop is £5 payable on the day, in cash please!  Bring your own lunch. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Come and reconnect with your painting colleagues, feel free to bring any friends who would like to find out more about our Group.

4th August – Barrington Village join us for this next Outdoor Painting Event, form 12.30 for lunch followed by painting.
