Notice from St. Andrews United Church:
Based on the Alberta Government COVID-19 announcements today, and specifically, “ No indoor social gatherings are permitted in any setting (private homes, public spaces or workplaces).”, we regretfully have made the decision to request that effective today the Foothills Art Club suspend further gatherings in the Church Hall until further notice.
We understand that the Alberta Government will be reviewing the new restrictions in three weeks and we will follow up with you again at that time.
Club Memberships paid for 2019-2020 will be extended to December 2020.
We are asking members to pay $60 to keep our club afloat from January until the end of August 2021.

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 usually meets from September to May on Thursday 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 evening to meet members and to see what we are working on.
Foothills Art Club has held 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. Guest presenter are sponsored throughout the year.
Weekend long workshops are 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.
