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.
UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO CIELO WINERY BEING SOLD, THE ART IN THE VINES
CIELO IN OCTOBER
HAS BEEN CANCELLED
July 20th General Meeting Program
For the July program, we’ll view the entries juried into the Mother Lode Show. And if time permits, as we hope it will, Shirley Isola will present a brief scratchboard demo. We are hoping that the mini workshop teachers will also be there to talk about their classes.
July Challenge Theme
Once again, there is no specific challenge theme (it just seems like there’s so much going on right now), but please bring a piece of your work – either completed or in progress – to share. And if you go to Wednesday’s paint-out, it would be great to see those pieces. Don’t be shy. It’s fun to see each others’ work, but we can’t see it if you don’t bring it!
