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, May 7, 2018 at 7:00pm in Fellowship Hall of East Shore United Methodist Church, 23002 Lake Shore Blvd., Eucild.  Guests are welcome for a $3.00 donation.  The elevator is working!
     
  • At the May meeting, we are featuring award-winning, local watercolor artist and teacher, Flo Smith.  Flo will demonstrate “Watercolor in the Style of Nita Engle”.  Nita Engle, born 1926 in Michigan, is an American watercolor painter with a breakthrough approach to watercolor that combines spontaneity and control to produce glowing, realistic paintings.  Flo has studied this approach and will show us how it’s done.  Here are a few examples of Flo’s work in that style.

  

  • Many thanks to Don Wells, local Euclid artist, for demonstrating Airbrush Techniques in acrylics at our April meeting.  We had an amazing crowd of over 45 members and guests.  Sitting in quiet amazement (but with lots of oooh’s and aaah’s), we watched Don paint, interacting with him by asking many questions.  Don called his presentation, “Treasures at Night”.  He displayed a high level of energy and enthusiasm as he airbrushed on his prepared purple and yellow canvas....the hidden treasures of balance and symbolism quickly appeared.  To read much more about the meeting and to see pictures, click here or go to the Demonstrations page.
  • Thank you, Kelley Davis and Mary Page Williams, for providing all those delicious desserts and other goodies that we enjoyed after the presentation.  You made the Easter Bunny proud!
     
  • Our president, Lee, explained why Lirpa Loof couldn’t make it to the April meeting.  She accidentally grabbed a bottle of magnetic ink thinking it was juice and now she is stuck to the ceiling of the space station.  To learn more about the adventures of Ms. Loof, check out our April newsletters at EuclidArt.com.
