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 5, 2017 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 meeting features our annual Members’ Art Critique night.  This year our artwork will be critiqued by George Kozmon, an internationally collected artist best known for his monumental architectural paintings, which have been widely exhibited and critically acclaimed throughout the US and abroad.  This is always a very popular meeting and many members take advantage of this opportunity.  Our members are requested to bring only one picture to be critiqued ..... or else the meeting could last all night!
  • The Euclid Art Association’s Annual Spring Fine Art Show at the Euclid Public Library starts Saturday, May 13, and runs through Saturday, May 20, 2017.  The show is open during regular library hours.  Come and see original artwork by local artists.  We will have over 170 pieces of artwork on display, including beautiful watercolors, photography, oils, acrylics and more.  This is a judged show and awards are given.  Click here to view the winners...

    Members and visitors may take a chance on the beautiful floral bouquet watercolor created by Cathy Welner and Bob Moyer at the February EAA meeting and framed, compliments of Jon Boyton at Driftwood Gallery in Euclid.  Raffle tickets are available at the show for $1 each or 6 for $5, with drawing at the end of the show.
  • Meet the winner of the 2017 Euclid Art Association Margret E. Hahn 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 Rankin workshop is FULL, but you can always sign up to be on the wait list....just in case there is an opening.  David Rankin, Essential Watercolor Skills Training Workshop, June 2, 3, 4, 2017. If you are a raw beginner wanting to learn the essentials of watercolor correctly....this three-day workshop will get you started in the best way possible.  And, if you have been painting in watercolor for some time and you want to refine your existing watercolor skills....this workshop is for you, too.  Details on the Workshops page.
  • Looking ahead to an EAA workshop scheduled for the fall of 2017....stay tuned for more details about “Tag Team Floral Watercolor Workshop” Saturday, October 7, 2017 with local award winning artists, Cathy Welner and Bob Moyer.
