Share, Create and Have Fun

Looking to join a group of artists that meets weekly and have fun? SAA invites you to Open Studio! Let’s face it, not everyone has precious studio space to create, or sometimes you would like to get together with friends who love to create and help inspire each another.  Artists must bring their own materials and supplies (including a bag lunch) and SAA will provide floor tarps, tables and table easels, table covering and chairs. So, what are you waiting for?? Come join us!! All mediums welcome.

Register below so we know you’re coming!

  3. Artists must bring a container with lid for cleaning brushes. Artists will not be allowed to wash brushes in sinks. Odorless turpentine/solvents only.
