What we're about
Welcome to Art Explorers Meetup, where we gleefully EXPOSE you to Art & Culture! Explore your Creative side with US!
A NOTE ABOUT MEETUP'S RECENT POLICY CHANGES: We DO charge a yearly fee of $10 and will continue to do so! You will not find a pay button on the Meetup websites but you will find a PayPal link and other payment instructions at the bottom of this page if you prefer one of those methods. Please contact me with your Meetup name and photo after paying by PayPal for me to activate your account (Do you know how many "Susans" we have?!). NON-paying members will now be able to RSVP to any event, courtesy of Meetup's new changes...HOWEVER, I have the option to charge a PER EVENT FEE to non-paying members, which Meetup is encouraging us to do! I also may delete you from any RSVP list I choose. Yearly paid members are exempt from the per event fee. It's your choice....very simple..pay the $10/yr (83 CENTS per month) and join us for 250+ events the next year and have fun with us, or....don't and miss out.
If you would like to pay with PayPal, please CLICK HERE (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=VEUJXKNQFLFWE). You may also use the DONATION button on the left side column and insert $10 or more. If you would rather pay by cash or check without using a credit card through PayPal, please contact me via the Contact Organizer button on the left side of each page– click on it and send me a message.
Enough about that....
No matter if you are an experienced artist or a no-experience art enthusiast, we explore and engage in a wide variety of art and cultural venues and happenings around the valley, AZ, neighboring states, and Internationally. Look back at some of our 850+ meetups that we’ve done in the past 3 years to understand what we’re about, and also the 170+ reviews of our members – it all speaks volumes about our ACTIVE and Friendly group!
Are you disappointed with other art or cultural groups that have a skimpy selection of events of which most are no-hosted listings, or when you arrive at an event either the host is a no show and no one knows anyone else, or most of the RSVP’s are no shows, or they’ve already moved on and gave no means to contact them? That is precisely how we are different! Art Explorers uses responsible Hosts for 99% of our listings, who arrive early to secure seating (when possible), greet each person arriving, and introduce each person to the group! We also provide our phone numbers so that you can keep in touch if running late or get lost! What a concept! Real. Personable. Service! Isn't that what you really want? This isn't just any yahoo Meetup group--We take our responsibilities seriously!
Our $10/yr fee to participate in our activities weeds out the chronic no-show people who indiscriminately sign-up to multiple events for the same time with multiple groups. For a mere 83 cents per month, you will have full access to all of our activities and be able to make reservations to join us and meet up with us and enjoy each other’s company. The 90-100% show-rate of our members is a pleasure to know that you are about to meet friendly and responsible people in an active and dependable group! There’s no need to fear arriving and ending up alone at our events!
We also offer art classes and workshops throughout the year when teachers are available, monthly art meetings for non-artists and artists, a yearly juried Art Show for artists to gain exhibiting experience, win ribbons & prizes and sell their work, and various community projects to become involved. Do look for our Road Trips around the state, other states, and Internationally as we seek the more unusual Adventures at a grassroots level where we can interact with the people and their cultures.
