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...
       
  • Euclid Art’s first monthly meeting of the new season is Monday, September 11, 2017.  The meeting starts at 7:00pm at the East Shore United Methodist Church, 23002 Lakeshore Blvd, Euclid in the Fellowship Hall.  Guests are always welcome for a $3.00 donation.  Suzette Cohen, artist and EAA member, will be our featured demonstrator.  Suzette, a long time acrylic painter, will demonstrate one of the newest acrylic techniques called poured or fluid acrylics.  This technique is taking the acrylic world by storm, as it has huge followings on both Facebook and Pinterest, worldwide.  This is how Suzette describes it....add a pouring medium to fluid acrylic paint, to the consistency of heavy cream.  Then pour it on a surface, like a canvas, using various methods called pour, flow, puddle or dirty pour.  Pick up the canvas and tilt it to let the paint run, creating marbling, rivers and if silicon is added to the paint, even amazing cellular designs....resulting in many beautiful abstract paintings.  Come to our September meeting and watch Suzette create these interesting, colorful abstracts.  Her acrylic painting, “Answers Were Mysterious”, won 1st place in May at our Spring Fine Art Show.  After the demonstration, refreshments will be served by our hosts, Nancy Daly and Sue Herrle.

  • 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...
