Free Art Groups

Groups are open to the public (adults only) — membership is not required. They meet at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts. Directions

Bring your own art supplies. Friday Open Art Meetups are devoted to a group project led by an instructor. A small supply fee may be required for those, but instruction is always free.

Enjoy the fellowship of other artists in these weekly opportunities to get inspired and create art. Tables, chairs and some equipment are provided, including drop cloths, easels, a light box and a mat cutter.  There is an attached kitchen for a source of water. You can bring snacks. The beautiful park setting is an inspiration. A library with art books is available to members for use.

Drop in for just a couple of hours or stay the entire session. You can bring a sack lunch and eat in the gallery or outside in beautiful Jaycee Park.

Participants can display work created in the yearly exhibition for Tuesday painters, usually held in July. Artists working in all media are welcome whatever the level of expertise.
