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...
       
  • At our very popular Members’ Night Critique on Monday, June 5, George Kozmon, an internationally collected artist best known for his monumental architectural paintings, was the art critic for the evening.  George’s artworks have been widely exhibited and critically acclaimed throughout the US and abroad.  He is a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art and lives in Gates Mills, OH. He also participates in IngenuityFest.  George tells us that he does a little of everything, but now he works large, very large.  He is currently working on an 8ft by 20ft mountain image on wood panels using acrylic and colored pencil....or ‘whatever works’.  We thank George for sharing his artistic insights with us.  Click here to see photos of the evening...

  • Meet the winner of the 2017 Euclid Art Association Margret E. Hain Memorial Art Scholarship - Euclid High School Senior, Jermaine Hawkins.  Jermaine says, "I grew up in a home where I was surrounded by art.  My father used to draw and he was talented.  So when I was growing up I would sit around for hours and draw.  I have chosen to major in graphic design because I want to have a career that reflects my personality as well as sustains a living.  Even though my career choice is not a fine artist, I plan on creating and exhibiting work throughout my life."  Click on an image to enlarge...

  • Our May meeting featured artist and illustrator, Cristal Baldwin, who drove all the way from London, OH, just west of Columbus, to share her talents with us...over 2 1/2 hours.  She was thrilled that we asked her to demonstrate Creative Colored Pencils at our meeting.  We were thrilled to have her...thank you, Cristal, for coming all that way.  Our members and guests enjoyed her presentation and were very impressed with her talents.  Do you want to see what she demonstrated for us?....click here.

    We thank our hosts for the evening, Diane Marra and Betsy Poti, for creating a beautiful spring table filled with all kinds of goodies....the mile-high ham sandwich sliders from SweetBerry Market disappeared quickly!  We also enjoyed ‘tulip’ cupcakes, brownie pie and a lot of other goodies.
  • Here are workshops scheduled for 2017....

    See photos of our latest workshop. Zendalas -Tangling in Sacred Circles held, Saturday, May 6, 2017 with certified ZT instructors, Launie McDevitt and Lisa Ruschman.  Mandala meets Zentangle in this journey to discover "Sacred Circles".  We began by creating our first Zendala in traditional Zentangle black & white on a pre-strung, round tile.  Then we experimented by creating abstract color backgrounds using spray inks to create unique media for the afternoon lessons.  Using foundation principles of Sacred Geometry “The Seed of Life” & “Flower of Life” we built a string on our colored background to tangle, shade and highlight.  And the instructors brought pizza for a great lunch, to keep our energy up.  See the colorful results...

    The three-day Essential Watercolor Skills Training Workshop, was another fantastic weekend workshop with David Rankin.  Thank you, David!  And thanks to everyone who participated.  We had a full class...members came from all over northeast Ohio, from New Jersey, Michigan and even British Columbia!  Click on the above link to see workshop photos.
