What we're about
Who We Are: Alameda Artists is a Meetup group for all Bay Area Artists and Creatives.
The Alameda Artist Group is for all creative media and practicing at all skill levels. (And you don't have to live in Alameda!) Most meetups are in Alameda but anyone who wants to sketch and draw and make art is welcome. We also have writing meetups, open studio/galleries shows, calls for art, maker space workshops, and many more creative meetups - don't see what you want? Suggest it!
This year (2018) we will be adding some new items to the agenda!
2. Ongoing Call For Art: Studio 23 (http://www.studio23gallery.com) will be accepting submissions every month for the Alameda & Jingletown 2nd Friday Artwalk. Visit http://www.alamedaartists.com/submit-art/ for more information.
3. 3 Dot & Inkblot join Alameda Artists Meetup! 3 Dot (http://www.3dotartgallery.com/) and Inkblot (https://www.inkblotgallery.com/) are local Alameda galleries that host special events, show local artists and have classes. They will now be posting their events and art classes right here on Meetup!
Several more local art events and classes will continue to pop up over 2018 so keep checking back.
Inspire others or be inspired, learn new techniques to implement or brush up on some old ones. Hone your craft and meet new people with similar interests.
Lets pick our favorite Alameda locations together, bring our favorite media to work in. We will sketch, paint, ink all over Alameda! We would love to hear your location suggestions! Please pm us!
Artist's are currently very active on Facebook, selling work, sharing techniques and cool upcoming art events. Be sure to join us on social media!

Costs: The cost of each class or event will vary depending on supplies needed and the location it is being held. The cost for the class will be announced in the details of that particular event page when the event is created.
Donations go to pay for Meetup.com fees, group art shows, snacks, drinks, rent and other various art supplies. Your donations are appreciated! Suggested donation is on a sliding scale $5-$10.
Don't let the donation suggestion stop you from coming to an art meetup if it is listed as FREE. We want every artist to have a place that they are welcome. However, paid classes are different and that fee would be required to participate. We are supported by local businesses who sponsor us like Flax (https://flaxart.com/oakland-store/) and Digifli (https://digifli.com/).
IMPORTANT! If less then 3 members RSVP for a meetup the meetup may be canceled right up to within a few hours before that meetup. Please check back the day of the meetup and look for cancelation notices in your email. We will do our best to inform you that a meetup has canceled asap.
Please do not RSVP unless you really plan on coming so we know how many artists to expect. If you do RSVP and can NOT make it (even at the last minute or after the event has started) please CHANGE your RSVP so we are not waiting for you!
