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, June 4, 2018 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.  This is the last meeting of our 2017-2018 season.  We do not meet in July and August.  REMINDER:  IT'S TIME TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP AT THE JUNE MEETING!
     
  • Our June meeting features the very popular Members’ Art Critique night.  Award winning artist and long time member of Euclid Art, Eddie Mitchell, will critique members’ art.  Eddie is very well known in the Ohio arts community....and beyond!  He teaches drawing and painting classes at Lakeland Community College and has taught at the Cleveland Art Institute.  His paintings hang at various Cleveland Clinic locations and in many area businesses.  Members are asked to bring only one picture to the evening’s critique.

  • We thank our May demonstrator, local watercolor artist and teacher, Flo Smith.  She presented a unique watercolor technique in the style of Nita Engle, an award winning artist, born in 1926 in Michigan.  This technique reminded us of a ‘watercolor version’ of poured acrylics...remember our September 2017 meeting, where Suzette Cohen demonstrated poured acrylics?  The spontaneity of this approach produces a glowing sky and an overall wash as the backdrop for the painting.  It was amazing to see what Flo accomplished in just over an hour and a half!  You’ll find a lot more info and pictures from Flo’s demonstration, if you click hereOr, go to the Demonstrations page.
     

  • We also thank our May hosts, Jennifer Theil and Barb Everett for the delicious table of treats....from fresh fruits and veggies, cheese and crackers, mini pepperoni pockets, cherry pastry and hummus, to a curiously delicious habanero pineapple sauce over cream cheese.

  • The Euclid Art Association’s Annual Spring Fine Art Show at the Euclid Public Library, May 12 - 19, 2018, was very successful.  Thanks to everyone who participated, organized, set up and took down the show, sat during the show, brought goodies to the reception, and to all who bought raffle tickets....there are so many people to thank!  We congratulate Jim Markel for winning the raffle...an original Cathy Welner floral watercolor.  He was so thrilled to win!  Also, congratulations to Best of Show winner, Eddie Mitchell for his complete Body of Work....five oil paintings.  We congratulate all the other awards winners, too.  To see pictures of the winning artwork, go to the Art Shows page or click here.  To see a few photos of the show taken by member Dennis McDonnell, click here.  Below, photos of the reception (top left, Eddie Mitchell receives "Best of Show" from EAA President Lee Peters;  bottom, Raffle winner Jim Markle with painting)


   
  • On April 28, 2018 we spent a fun Saturday learning to paint "Trees in Watercolor" with artist, David Rankin.  We thank David for another fantastic workshop...it was a full class!  David's goal was for us to become better tree painters!  The class objective was not to complete a painting, but to learn techniques that would allow us to sketch any tree in nature, as well as learn key tips on how to paint them, such as the use of merged brushwork.  As we worked on our own sketches and paintings, David spent time with each of us, helping to improve our techniques.  Great class, David!  Also, we give special thanks to Joan, Sandi, Ellen and Jim for the delicious goodies they brought for us to enjoy.  For more information and pictures from this workshop, click here or go to the archive section on the Workshops page.  We look forward to a fall workshop with David on "How to Develop a Sketch Book and Travel Journal".  He promises to take us on a sketchbook journey to India.
