The Reading Guild of Artists (RGA), founded in 1930, is a diverse group of professional and amateur artists in the Berkshire area. Membership is open to all and new members are very welcome, from complete beginners to experienced professionals, or those just interested in art. Non-members are welcome to attend our Earley Painters sessions, RGA Friday workshops and Summer Painting Days.
