Welcome to the Harpenden Arts Club!
The Harpenden Arts Club aims to provide a wide range of creative workshops, demonstrations, life drawing and studio practice evenings, as well as a sociable meeting point for artists of all abilities. We meet most Thursday evenings at 7.30 - 9.30 pm in the small public hall, Southdown Road, Harpenden, AL5 1PD.

Harry Dobkin - the new honorary president of HAc
After 12 years on the Committee with the Harpenden Arts Club, most recently as the club's Webmaster and photographer, Harry Dobkin has recently retired. He has made many valuable contributions to the smooth running of the club over the years and his humour and willingness to help will be sorely missed. But we are grateful that he has accepted the position of Honorary President of the club, which was unanimously offered to him by the Committee. Hopefully we will still see many more years of his artistic endeavours in his retirement.
ANNUAL ART EXHIBITION - 8th - 11th November 2018
The Harpenden Arts Club celebrated its 60th Annual Art Exhibition in November at the Harpenden Public Halls, which was a sparkling success and great fun!
For a review of the exhibition and photos go to the 2019 Exhibitions page:
We are a sociable and creative group of people who enjoy learning new art techniques and sharing ideas. We have over 130 members and a strong committee of nine enthusiastic individuals who, along with many willing helpers, organise and run the activities.
