What we're about

We are a group of fine artists that meet the third Thursday of every month for FREE demonstrations, fellowship and refreshments. With kind critiques we try to improve our skills and ourselves. We may offer classes and workshops during the year for a small fee. Club meetings are free to anyone who wants to attend at any time. However, paid membership has its benefits too. Paid members may be included in our Annual Show and any other fine art shows we enter as a club during the year. Come to a few meetings, see if we are a good fit for you, then bring your current work and get voted in for club membership! The cost is only $35 for the entire year. But, you don't have to be a member to come and see all the wonderful demo's from professional artisans. Paid members bringing their current work to meetings are voted on for 'Artist of the Month'. We have an Annual Show and exhibit several times a year at great venues like the Triton Museum's Midsummer Art Show. We work in all sorts of mediums including watercolor, oil painting, acrylics, jewelry making, sculpture, charcoal, photography, felting, gourd art, basket making, etc. What medium would you like to add to the list? The field is wide open! Come on over anytime, we would love to have you! Did I mention the free demonstrations from local artists?

Studio Saturday

Foothill Presbyterian Church

We have use of the fellowship hall, it's tables and chairs too, the fourth Saturday of the month. Let's get together, spread out our supplies whatever they may be and dig in while getting to know each other better. Please RSVP if you are coming so we get out enough tables for everyone. If you RSVP then please attend. You can bring a friend and a snack too! We can also do projects together or learn new skills. Leave a comment if you'd like to suggest anything that you would like to use Studio Saturday for. I've been getting requests for classes in drawing, computer skills for your business ETC. Let's do art!
