RGA Fridays is now taking its summer break and will begin again in the autumn 2019. If you have any ideas or sugestions for the next programme please contact Martina at info@rga-artists.org.uk


RGA Fridays take place once a fortnight in the Autumn and Spring terms. The workshops give members and guests a chance to learn or develop their skills in different forms, and with different techniques. It is also a chance to meet up with other artists and friends.

RGA Friday session RGA Friday Session

Our sessions are a mix of tutored sessions focusing on a specific topic or medium, and more informal sessions working from a display created and led by one of our members with a theme that allows you to experiment in the media of your choice.

They are usually held in the Studio, of the New Art Block at Maiden Erlegh School, Silverdale Road, Earley, RG6 7HS. There is ample parking on site. The school is behind the parade of shops on Betchworth Avenue.

The cost per session is £6 for members and £7 for guests. An additional small charge is made if any specialised materials are needed or a model is involved. No need to book, just turn up. Everyone Welcome!

You will still need to pay any additional contributions for models or materials.

Doors open at 6:45pm, the session starts at 7:00 till 9:30.

Please bring your own refreshments.
