The Placerville Arts Association is El Dorado County’s oldest non-profit art group in continuous operation since it was formed in the early 1960’s. The current membership of approximately 190 includes both artists and patrons of the arts.
The purpose of Placerville Arts Association is to promote visual arts in the local community through art shows, exhibitions, art demonstrations, workshops, scholarships and art oriented field trips.
Placerville Arts Association provides community outreach programs by offering yearly scholarships to graduating high school seniors pursuing art related careers; awarding monetary grants to elementary school art programs; and donating a scholarship grant to the Sugarloaf Student Art Camp.
Our guest for the March program is Jay Bishop. Jay is a sculptor and says he has been afflicted with art his whole life. It promises to be an interesting and entertaining program.
Our theme for sharing at the March meeting is “Get Out of Your Box!” Try anything new or scary to you – or perhaps even something you don’t think you’ll like! Try a new color, a new subject, a new medium. Just anything that stretches you.
This meeting will be held at the Placerville Senior Center at 1:30pm.
High School Art Scholarship Applications are due March 13. Please contact Cathy Keil at email@example.com for more info.
