What we're about

We are a group that likes to get together and make art, and we welcome anyone who creates any type of art. If you sketch, draw, paint, do digital art, photograph cool things, make jewelry, do fiber arts, art journal, or any combination therein, we welcome you! Through our Meetups we hope to cultivate creativity and provide inspiration by sharing our art, ideas, and ourselves.

Note from the new Leadership Team:

If you have ideas for future Meetups, please share them! I've started a thread in the discussions tab. Feel free to respond with your ideas. We really want to make this group something amazing, and with there being so many of us, I'm sure that we can, if we work together. 😄
