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...
  

  

  • Our next monthly meeting is Monday, February 6, 2017 at 7:00pm in Fellowship Hall of East Shore United Methodist Church, 23002 Lake Shore Blvd., Euclid.  Guests are welcome for a $3.00 donation.  The demonstrator for our February meeting will be announced soon...so check back often!
  • At our Monday, January 9, 2017 meeting, we featured members, Gerry Shamray, Dan Driscoll, and Eddie Mitchell, plus workshop previews by Launie McDevitt & Lee Peters.  On this very cold January evening, 34 members and one guest, came out to hear Gerry, Dan and Eddie talk to us about their artwork.  That’s a very nice show of support from our membership when you consider this was the very same evening as the big college football game!  But then again, the January meeting is always one of our favorites and as we heard someone say....“the best meeting ever.”  “Northeast Ohio really is teeming with talent!”...another comment.

    Gerry Shamray, who considers himself the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of cartoonists, started the evening off with his slideshow presentation.  Followed by Dan Driscoll, an engineer who is a ‘wanna be’ cartoonist and whimsical artist.  Lastly, Eddie Mitchell’s life, as an artist, teacher, gardener, builder, etc., flashed before us on the screen over next 30 minutes.  We thank each of them for an entertaining evening of art!  For more information and pictures from each presentation, please click on Gerry, Dan, Eddie or go to the Events Page
    .  Thanks also to Launie and Lee for their short preview of upcoming workshops on Zendalas and Photoshop Elements.
     


    Frosty the Snowman was the theme for the evening’s refreshments.  We thank our hosts, Juanita Sweet and Kelley Davis...first timers.  They did a fantastic job!  We enjoyed so many tasty treats.  The graham cracker crunch cookies were a big hit....Juanita shares her recipe on the
    Events Page.

  • We thank David Rankin for a fantastic weekend workshop on October 21-23, 2016 on Mastering Watercolors Middle Values.  One of our out-of-town guests said “David's workshop was one of the best I've taken”.  In his Friday evening video and lecture presentation, David asked us “How did these masters create such great paintings?”....without the use of fancy cameras and iPhones and Photoshop.  Then, on Saturday and Sunday, we learned how to make small gray studies....to try out what we learned....to try out new ideas quickly.  For more information, pictures and interesting links, go to demonstration page or click here.
