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 hopefully physically) in the evenings, ranging from drawing sessions to movie nights! We're also welcome to working with other societies for collaboration sessions - last year, we had a successful collaboration with Games society!

We hope to see you soon!


With an ArtSoc membership, you get various benefits such as exclusive access to exhibitions and events on- and off-campus. A membership also ensures that you will get free access to some paid ArtSoc events, such as live model drawing.

Your membership fees help us maintain the society’s finances and to purchase art supplies (which we all know demands your family fortune). Furthermore, being a member of ArtSoc will get you the opportunity to meet several like-minded individuals and learn together in pursuit of improvement.

A membership in the second half of the academic year is necessary if you wish to stand and vote in society positions!

You can buy your membership for the full year, or a termly basis if you like!

  • Term 1: £3.50
  • Full year (Terms 1 to 3): £6.00


Time: Mondays and Thursdays, 7 to 10PM
Where: On the Discord Channel (Assuming we can have physical sessions, do keep an eye out on our social media for updates on where they will be!)
