The core of our activities is the monthly evening meeting, regularly attended by many members. These events held on the first Tuesday of each month, include demonstrations, talks, workshops and media experimentation evenings.

In addition to our regular meetings we organise a wide range of other activities, including daytime outdoor painting groups and indoor sessions, which include life drawing and portraiture. Our membersĀ also participate in various competitions. Each year, for example, we compete with Watford Camera Club.

We meet at the Beechen Grove Baptist Church Hall in the centre of Watford on Clarendon Road (See “Directions” page – for details). Doors open at 7.00 for 7.30pm. Visitors are always welcome.

The Society is a very friendly and welcoming group, so why not come and join us!
