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.

On Wednesday afternoons (and many Fridays!) we open the doors to all members to come work on projects or socialize, get inspiration and free advice, borrow our library books, etc. Once or twice a month a member may offer a focused session, and give a demo to those who are interested in learning new skills.

    Join Fox Robison on Monday's starting September 30th from 7-9pm for an exploration in creating from life. We will discuss various strategies to become portable as an artist and the practices, while in the field, that best facilitate engagement with the scene. The aim of the class is that you are able to capture a moment by storytelling through image, and are prepared to take your art out into the scene's that inspire you. 

    Over the course of six classes we will develop an approach to accomplishing a completed work of art from start to finish within a 2 hour span . This will incorporate methods of encountering a scene and discerning subject, planing compositional elements, and using the principles of design to communicate visually. Techniques that will be introduced include developing sketches, basic drawing skills, and watercolor painting. We will then delve further into the details of taking a piece to completion. 

    Supplies are not included, however a recommended list of materials to purchase is available, and as well attendees are encouraged to bring their own supplies. 


    6 week class series - $150 

    Single drop-in class- $30
