Each month members can participate in classes, open studio time, plein air field trips, workshops and special events. Come and enjoy getting to know your Quail Creek neighbors and learn more about art.

As a member you receive priority in registering for classes and a discounted class rate. You can have fun painting outdoors on a plein air field trip or work on your own during open studio. Participate in contests and opportunities to sell your work, if you want. It’s your choice.
