Ashcroft Arts Club – Talent everywhere

News from the Ashcroft Arts Club. So you'd like to be an artist...

There are all kinds of artistic people in our area.  Many artists and photographers are already involved with the Ashcroft and District Art Club, but there are many more talented people who we don’t know about yet. Perhaps you are a person who draws easily, has an eye for just the right photo or already paints or wishes to paint. If so, please plan to join us so we can get acquainted.

Our members enjoy the club for different reasons. We all find that being part of the club motivates us in our artistic endeavours. Weekly activities present us with techniques that help us to learn new ways to use our favourite medium or try a new one. We thrive on the comradery, inspiration and encouragement we receive. Painting together gives others a creative get away from busy lives while some of us especially enjoy painting in the colder winter months when our outside activity is limited.

We welcome all levels from beginners to advanced artists to join us. Our bylaws require anyone wishing to take part in the annual Art Show in April must be members by Dec. 31. We hope you will consider joining us. If so, please check in online at, visit us at St. Alban’s Hall, 503 Brink St. between 10am-1pm on Wednesdays in November, email me at or call me at 250-453-9864.
