Our purpose is to stimulate an interest in the visual arts among our members and to promote the establishment of a Fine Art Center in the Community.

 
 Welcome to the Euclid Art Association...


       

  • On Monday, December 4, 2017, Euclid Art Association is celebrating Christmas! Members and their guests are cordially invited to attend.  The party will be held at the Henn Mansion, 23131 Lakeshore Blvd, Euclid....that’s almost directly across the street from the East Shore Methodist Church.  There will be a small charge of $5/person to cover the cost of renting the Henn.  Tickets can be purchased at the door.  Arrive early and don’t forget to bring your potluck food and auction items!  The doors open at 4:00pm for those helping to setup.  We’ll be serving appetizers and punch starting at 5:30pm.  Your Christmas Party invitation and all the info, including RSVP details, will be in the December Newsletter....due to arrive a week early.

  • We thank our November demonstrator, Augusto Bordelois, for his presentation on Structure in Portraits.  Augusto demonstrated how to draw a perfect portrait, where all the features, eyes, nose, mouth, ears, are proportional.  He was classically trained to see a person’s face in proportion....to see shapes.  Thank you, Augusto, for demonstrating yet another, very interesting technique for drawing faces!  Over the years, EAA has presented several different portrait drawing techniques. Many of you will remember Dottie Geisert’s recent workshop on The Development of the Portrait in Black and White or David Rankin’s workshop in 2015 on Faces in Watercolor or his 5-Minute Sketching Recipe for Faces of All Kinds.  For more information on Augusto’s demonstration and for pictures, check out the Demonstrations Page.

  • “The Falling Leaves of Autumn” was the theme for the evenings refreshments, served to us thanks to Sue and Ray Lokar and Mary Ann Gambitta. We enjoyed lots of delicious treats....thank you all.

  • Our Breckenridge Village Winter Art Show is November 13, 2017, through January 8, 2018.  It’s worth a trip to the Mahan Cultural Center at Breckenridge Village, 36851 Ridge Rd, Willoughby, to see our members artwork hanging in this quaint hallway gallery.

  • Thank you, Dottie Geisert, for a fantastic and very successful workshop on Saturday, October 28.  Dottie taught 17 participants how to develop a “Portrait in Black and White”, using a live model.  Afterwards, everyone asked when her next workshop will be…..we’ll see!  Click the above link to see pictures from the class.
