Welcome to the official website of Tonbridge Art Group!

New members are always made very welcome.

Have a look at  the  ‘Picture Gallery’  for images from our evening meetings and the “News page” for the latest information about activities.

The Tonbridge Art Group is a Charity that was founded in the late 1960s by a small group of art students at the Tonbridge Adult Education Centre with the encouragement of their tutor.

The objective of the group is to advance the education of the public in art particularly painting and drawing and allied crafts.

Most of the circa 60 members are active artists using an array of different mediums and with a wide range of styles and abilities. Beginners are very welcome and encouraged to visit and join.

Details of our programme can be found on the programme page and you can also find us on facebook where we also post details of the evenings , if you “Like” the page you will receive updates as they are posted. For more information on our evening meetings contact Programme@tonbridgeartgroup.com

Visitors are welcome to come to our talks and demonstrations for £5.00 per visit with the first visit being free of charge (just let one of the members know you are a new visitor). There are a number of events that are for members only and these are clearly noted on the programme.

Membership is open to anyone over the age of 14 years with an interest in art. The fee is £38 per full year with a reduction for junior members (under 18 years old). Renewal of the membership fee is due at the Annual General Meeting in May. For more information on membership please contact Membership@tonbridgeartgroup.com

Exhibition and sales of members’ work are held annually in the Spring and Autumn in the Council Chamber, Tonbridge Castle.  For more information on our exhibitions please visit the exhibition page or contact Exhibitions@tonbridgeartgroup.com
