Artist's Trading Cards
We meet once a month on the second Thursday evening to create and trade Artist's Trading Cards . The cards only restriction is that they must measure 2-1/2"X 3-1/2", be original art (photographs do count), fit into a standard trading card sleeve, and have the artist's contact information on the back. Bring your materials with a bit extra to share, some wine, learn new techniques, and start your own art collection! Use the theme of the month for inspiration or do as you wish.

Still Life/Plein Aire
This group will meet every week, although some weeks may be dedicated to plein air, depending on weather and the group members' wishes. Use whatever medium you work in...oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoal or watercolor. On Still Life weeks, members take turns selecting the subject, gathering objects, and setting up an arrangement. Some weeks may be designated as plein air weeks. On those weeks members will make arrangements to meet at local painting spots rather than at the studio. No instruction. Contact group leader for details.
