The Cambridge Society of Arts has been based out of the Thornton Rd premises known as The Painting Place since it started in the 1960s. While members have come and gone, its kindred creativity has lived on. For many, the group is more about having a relaxed social morning together, with art work to keep them busy. More than anything the group is a social group – having a laugh, having a cup of tea, creating work in a very positive atmosphere. Join a class or just go and hang out.
