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 from September to May on Wednesdays from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Cochrane, Alberta Canada in the St.Andrew’s United Church MAP
If you are thinking of joining our club, please feel free to come out on a Wednesday evening to meet members and see what we are working on.
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.

Hello all, this is the info for
We will set up and be in place prior to noon. We’re booked in from noon to 4 pm hopefully we have enough members involved so we can all do about an hour and a half to 2 hours each. So the more the merrier! We’re trying to really push the club, think new members, fun place to be
It would be great to display and create art. A tent was offered by Erica and I will check to confirm it will be there. Those that volunteer, thank you , make sure you bring personal items to keep you comfortable: folding chair, hat , comfortable shoes jacket painting supplies and portable easels.
Email Marty to let us know you will be be there.
The site map below shows where we will be setting up (8). We will have great neighbours – Butterfield Acres petting zoo on one side and pony rides on the other - so a lot of traffic will be coming your way.
For set up access, please use the make-shift entry point between both hotels (Super8 and Days Inn). We will have utility vehicles and wagons available to assist in bringing items to the area as we are trying to reduce the number of vehicles on the grass.
