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, April 1, 2019 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.  Our April meeting features Master Artist, Edward E. Parker...a man of many talents.  He’s an educator, entrepreneur, retired professor, sculptor, muralist and proprietor of a B&B.  At this meeting he will mainly focus his presentation on “My Journey as an Artist”.  Per Ed, "my motto has always been 'Think' ART for social development."  One of his major murals is the MLK Center Mural in East Cleveland and his amazing sculptures can be seen in the EEP Museum of Art that displays his artworks.  In addition, we are sure to enjoy stories about the Snickerfritz Cultural Workshop for the Arts, Inc, that he established in 1974 and his 20 years as the professor of art at Cuyahoga Community College.  For more information about Ed Parker, click The History Makers link.  Come and enjoy an interesting evening of art with refreshments afterward!

  • We thank artist, Liz Senn, for an entertaining demonstration of drawing caricatures at our March 4th meeting.  Using the image of celebrity Helena Bonham-Carter, Liz explained how she creates her caricatures and the materials she uses.  She selects a facial feature for focus, emphasizing the forehead and hair.  Liz selected the perfect audience member for her next caricature....Eddie Mitchell!  Eddie could not resist joking during his stint as the model, and the audience joined in with more jokes and lively banter.  For more information and pictures, click here or go to the Demonstrations page.

  • Let the good times roll for this Mardi Gras eve, with a festive table prepared by Bernadette Russ and Terese Berzinskas.  Lots of green was evident in both the foods and the décor, with a table full of sweet and savory treats.  Thank you, Bernie and Terese, for being our hosts for March.
