Foothills Art Club
The Foothills Art Club offers an opportunity to enhance your enjoyment and skills in art. Come and be a part of it!
The club meets on Wednesdays from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Cochrane, Alberta Canada St.Andrew’s United Church MAP
Foothills Art Club holds a fall and a spring Art Show and Sale, with all members being eligible to take part. We have monthly scheduled ‘open-studios’ or ‘paintouts’ at the Beaupre Hall, west of Cochrane, as well as outside ‘plein-air’ painting sessions during the summer. We have guest presentations and demonstrations by members throughout the year, in addition to weekend workshops led by professional instructors. At least once a month we have a ‘theme night’ when member(s) will share a special technique or resource and also a ‘critique corner’ night for members to bring their work for suggestions or feedback.
September 6, the Club Executive served up our annual MacKay's Ice Cream Social. Stop in and thank MacKay's Ice Cream for their tasty donation.

Sept 29 Community Dedication Celebration on Friday, September 29, , 1:00pm.

Oct 1 Sunday from 12 pm to 6 pm at the Library. Alberta Culture Days and the Library want to create a beautiful mural of five panels to be affixed to the Library’s fence. This mural will serve as a visual story of the Cochrane community’s history, its present, and its future. We want to portray a vision that memorializes this western town as an important piece of Canada’s history during the 150th Anniversary year.

FYI: Saffron Collective Studio has space available for rent and/or workshops. Our collective studio is expanding and we are opening up rooms to artists of any capacity to join. If you're interested in joining an artist community this is the place for you! I'd love to meet and discuss more with you. Classroom space to paint in an evening or daytime is also an option. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon! Nicole Snider Info@saffroncollectivestudios.com
