Society of Chrishall Artists (SOCA)

Society of Chrishall Artists (SOCA)

We have ten evening meetings a year in the South Hall of the Village Hall. We currently have 16 members. You may join any time during the year and the fees will be apportioned. Some sessions have a theme and others are open for members to paint or create whatever they would like. We also have sketching evenings out and about in the village when the nights are lighter.

We try to arrange trips to visit art exhibitions, studios and other art related events in addition to our programme, not to mention our annual Christmas dinner – normally held in January!

Cost per person is £15 pa to cover hall rental and refreshments. Additional fees are charged when we have to pay for a tutor or extra materials. Details are given in advance of the session.

The start


The Society was founded by Caroline Fookes and Helen Melville-Smith in 2005.
