Art Club returns to monthly meetings

The monthly meetings and affairs of the Ashcroft Art Club.

Can you believe that summer is over next week? Where did it go?

Hopefully our members found time to create works of art over the summer, but the first week of September we are always ready to come together again to share what we have done and to be re-inspired  to paint or sculpt again.

We begin the season with our first fall get together being held on Sept. 2 in St. Albans Church Hall with working on our art from 10–2 and taking a break for our noon meeting.

The coffee pot and tea kettle are always on and friendship and encouragement abound, so we invite those interested in becoming members to come so that you don’t miss a moment of artful fun! Membership is open to all residents of the Ashcroft area. We welcome all skill levels of artists, from beginner to advanced.

For those who might not be so sure, we invite you to an official Open House on Sept. 23 from 10-noon at St. Albans Hall so that you can see some of our art and talk with the members.

Be sure to check out our web site at for more information.
