What We Do

What We Do

Monthly Meetings

We exchange ideas and foster good fellowship through several kinds of meetings:

  • We visit members’ and other artists’ studios.
  • We host guest artist speakers and demos.
  • We have group critiques.
  • We create collaborative artworks by “painting around” – each artist brings a medium and starts an artwork. Every ten minutes each artist moves to the next artwork and adds to it. By the end, every artist has contributed to every artwork.
  • We exchange artwork in a drawing at our Christmas/Holiday luncheon.
  • For the current meeting schedule, visit our Meetings page
