Summer Programme 2021

Hertford Art Society Members have traditionally enjoyed painting and sketching out of doors on Tuesday evenings during the Summer months at various venues in the Hertford Area. These events could not take place in 2020 due to Covid restrictions but it has been possible to plan an exciting Programme for 2021 as detailed below, commencing on Tuesday 18th May as groups of up to 30 will be allowed outdoors with effect from 17th May 2021. Should the Government Guidance change a revised Programme will be published on this site.

Members usually meet at around 7.00pm (or beforehand by private arrangement) for sketching & painting, then gather socially in the suggested public house when the light fails. Any local artists from these villages or areas are welcome to come along for the outdoor painting sessions except for those restricted to Members of the Society, as indicated.
