Our mission is to promote the arts and encourage creativity.
We are an active group of artists and photographers, many with professional designations,
who love learning, enjoy creating art, and pay it forward with
scholarships for college art students.
Please join us at our lively and informative meetings with lectures and
demonstrations by professional artists. We meet monthly during the Fall and Spring.
