About us

The RHUL Art Society is a space and community where students of Royal Holloway can create, share, discuss and explore the visual arts.

Whether you doodle in your lecture notes, or you're the next Gentileschi or Picasso , this is the society for you! Come along to one of our sessions and let your creativity flow! We welcome students from any background, course, and degree of artistic skill.

Throughout the year we will also be hosting various social events (both virtually and physically), ranging from drawing sessions to movie nights! We're also welcome to working with other societies for collaboration sessions - this year we've had a successful collaborations with GameSoc, Witchcraft Society, Mentality, Craft Society, Humans Vs Zombies, Feminist Society, the RHUL Culture Team, the Student Union and many others!

We hope to see you soon!
