The Dedham Arts Group was founded in 1967 and became a well-established group meeting regularly at the Littlegarth Studio, Dedham.


The change of name to The Dedham Art Society was agreed by members at the  2018 AGM when the Assembly Rooms, Dedham became the new venue for meetings.

The Dedham Art Society operates under a wider concept to include artists from all over Essex and Suffolk. The Society upholds the spirit of the Dedham village and its neighbouring villages with landscapes much loved by the ground-breaking artist John Constable. The Society is made up of professional and amateur artists of all abilities and levels. We have workshops and demonstrations taking  place with visiting professional artists. Enjoyment of painting and the other arts continues to motivate the Society.

We meet twice monthly on a Thursday afternoon in the Assembly Rooms at the end of Dedham High Street , left on the road out to Colchester. In the summer months we meet to paint at wonderful  outdoor venues.

The annual subscription is £30, payable from January

to January. Anyone joining after 1st July subscription for that year will be

reduced to £20.  When we have demonstrations and workshops run by

professional artists, members may bring guests.

There is a charge for such sessions. £5.00 per attendee ..

20.03.2020  Please note all Sessions are suspended for at least 6 months
