Ashcroft Art Club – Artists host Open House next week

Alice Durksen reports monthly on what the Ashcroft Art Club is doing.

Summer is a time that Ashcroft Art Club Members see new sites that inspire them, think about new techniques they want to learn and perhaps dream about the “masterpiece” they wish to achieve before the Art Show in April.  Fall is the time we come back to our regular hours together share ideas and to put our summer dreamscapes on paper and canvas.

Perhaps you have dreams of creating art too.  If so, why not come and visit us at our Fall Open House, Wednesday, Sept. 23, at St. Alban’s  Hall, 501 Brink St. Ashcroft, 11am-1pm to see our art work in progress and to discuss how we can support you in allowing your artistic dreams to become a reality. We’ll share a cup of coffee or tea and goodies to aid our conversation. For further information about the club, check out our web site at .
