About


Westport Art Group was formed in 1955 by a small group of local, art-minded women. Since then, we have grown into a robust and colorful community organization with over 300 members from all over South Coast, Massachusetts, southern Rhode Island, and beyond. At our newly-renovated Main Road, Westport building, we offer both adult and youth art classes and show events throughout the year,  many of which are open to the public. Please join us!
