What we're about

Join other local artists in working on all kinds of art.

We began as a group focused on Artist Trading Cards (ATCs), which are small (3.5- x 2.5-inch) works of original art. We've expanded into all kinds of other mixed-media genres, such as altered books, art journals, painting, stamping, collage, and more. (See "About Us" for much more detail.)

Our group is open to adult artists and craftspeople (you must be 18+ to join) at all experience levels. Our current members range from professional artists to near-newbies. We offer a variety of demos at our monthly Meetups in Natick, and we're looking to meet more frequently and in other locations. Everyone is welcome at our events—we just ask that you RSVP to let us know you're attending.

This group, which began in mid-2007, has quickly evolved into a lively, highly creative community. As one member puts it: "You feel like you're 'in the flow' from the moment you walk in the door." And yet it's not all about self-expression: Without exception, members have been extraordinarily generous about sharing ideas, techniques and tools.

Signing up for events is easy. Just join this Meetup group (membership is free). Then RSVP "yes" for the events that interest you.

Bottom line: We take art seriously, but we have a LOT of fun. And we welcome newcomers. Join us.

(Cards will be mailed separately, probably after the Meetup.) COST: $5-$10 to cover Meetup fees. We'll provide a PayPal address and a USPS mailing address for payment. This fee covers the most recent payments for our group's Meetup.com service.

If this is a hardship, just let the organizer know. ZOOM LINK: Will be sent to everyone who has signed up here and will also be posted in our private Facebook group. Not in our FB group? Go to Facebook, look for "NE MMM" (no hyphen), and ask to join. https://www.facebook.com/groups/864825807321887/ RSVPs: Please RSVP "yes" here to attend; that way, we'll have an approximate headcount, and you'll receive all notifications about the Meetup! If your plans change, just change your RSVP to "no." Hope to see you there! Anne and organizational team
