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.

Starting in July to October, the Art Walk will run on the second Saturday of each month during the Cochrane Farmers Market. Participating artists are invited to display and sell their art in the beautiful setting of the ClubHouse Activity Centre located at the Historic Cochrane Ranche.
Registration is simple. Click the link below and follow the instructions on the Town website: ClubHouse Art Walk Registration Form.
F.A.C. is planning on putting in a booth/tent at the Cochrane Night Street Market on Aug. 17th. 5:pm - 9:pm with the purpose of promoting membership in The Club , advertising our upcoming annual fall show in Oct. and overall letting everyone know about us. Not fundraising or selling anything. If members want to display a piece of art (if there is room) or have their business cards on display, it will add to the promotion. Contact Beryl for more info.

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
