On the third Monday of each month, at 6:30 p.m., SCAA hosts a general membership meeting with professional demonstrations.
After the demonstration, the evening concludes with a raffle of the demonstration piece or an art piece from the artist.
All meetings are free and open to the public and visitors are welcome.
Workshops from well-known artists and marketing professionals are held two or three times each year.
A monthly plein aire destination is available for the outdoor painter.
The SCAA Gallery is located at 22508 6th St., Newhall 91321 (just off Main St. beside the public parking lot near the Canyon Theatre Guild). The gallery is generally open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. In addition, members display and sell art at many venues throughout Santa Clarita.
“We promote our mission of Making Visual Art Visible through community outreach programs that are educational, child-friendly and free to the general public,” Mullich said. “We award scholarships to art students, from high school to college, in Santa Clarita. Our emphasis is to be a support group devoted to the enrichment of members’ experience through the visual arts.”
SCAA, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded in 1989 and has a broad range of talent from professional to novice. Members encourage, assist, develop and exchange ideas/techniques on artistic skills. Visit www.santaclaritaartists.org for the latest information.
