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, March 5, 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.  At this meeting we are featuring a unique and very interesting presentation by Holly Queen Biss, a registered, board certified art therapist and certified thanatologist (one who studies death and dying, especially in its psychological and social aspects).  She will present The Impact of Art Therapy and will touch upon The Value of Creating Art as You Age.  Holly graduated from Ursuline College’s Counseling and Art Therapy program and has practiced art therapy for over 20 years.  Inspired and trained by the late Tom Kitwood (a pioneer in the field of dementia care), she has concentrated on using art in person-centered care of individuals and families living with dementia and terminal illnesses.

  • We thank our February demonstrator, Victoria Wagner, for a fantastic evening of art!  Close to 30 members and guests sat in quiet amazement as we watched Victoria demonstrate “Portraiture Techniques in Oil”.  Victoria has been teaching art for 25 years, but she’s been painting for 50!  Even though Victoria uses every kind of medium in her artwork, her favorite is definitely oil.  Her objective for the evening was to complete an oil portrait in an hour.  Victoria selected member, Kelley Davis, from the audience as her model.  As Kelley’s likeness came alive on the canvas, Victoria gave us many interesting tips.  An hour and a half later, the beautiful painting of Kelley was done!...what an amazing likeness.  Victoria graciously gave Kelley the finished portrait.  Thank you, Victoria and Kelly!  For tips, pictures, and more information, click here or visit the Demonstrations page.

  • Valentine’s Day was the theme for the evening’s refreshments....many thanks to Joan Milligan, Dottie Geisert and Helen Karpoff.  We enjoyed so many delicious treats....valentine heart cakes, cream puffs, bacon wrapped chicken, veggie tray with homemade sour cream dill dip, fresh orange wedges, assorted cookies, fruit skewers, and cheese & crackers.
