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
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.

The Foothills Art Club is proud to have received a grant from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. Funds will help us purchase equipment to expand our Show & Sale this fall and next spring.
