Guest Artist Demonstrations
After each monthly general meeting, we host a guest artist to give a demonstration of his or her art. We seek people who have a variety of skills and interests and those we might not normally have an opportunity to see here. Included are artists who work in oils, watercolors, mixed media, pastels, etc.
Judged Art Shows
The Woodlands Art League is a member of The Lone Star Art Guild and we host 2 LSAG-ruled shows a year. The show is open to all WAL and other LSAG members. It is judged by an independent artist hired by WAL. See Lone Star Art Guild for rules. Check the calendar for information on the next show. For more information, contact Beverly Chemin, VP-Judged Shows.
The Woodlands Art League sponsors library shows at the Mitchell Library and the South County Library twice a year. This is an opportunity for artists to display their work for a month at no charge to the artist. The public is welcomed and encouraged to make purchases. Each show has a featured artist displays several pieces. There will be a written article about his/her art preferences, background, and art experiences and accomplishments. Pictures and an article will be submitted to the local newspaper for publication. Check the Calendar for the next scheduled show. For more information contact Marcie Aduddell, Library Shows Director.
Working with a more experienced artist in a focused learning environment is a great way to refine existing skills and learn new ones or to learn more about a medium or approach with which you are not familiar. WAL organizes workshops and informs members about upcoming workshop opportunities in the area.
All artists are invited to open art groups to draw or paint from a live model. Only model fee required. Click on Art Groups in the Submenu on the left.
In addition to the above, WAL is a Charity Partner of the Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival, helping to provide hundreds of volunteer hours to make this event a success. Contact Kim Abbati for more info.
