Do you have knowledge to share?  Would you like to provide a workshop to help our members gain deeper skills? At APS our goal is to foster a strong art community and awareness of local artists.

Contact the Workshop Chair to learn more information about contributing your skills in a workshop, mini-workshop or demo.



Whether you are a professional, a life-time weekend artist, or just curious, we are here to help you build your skills.

Each meeting features presentations by prominent artists on a range of topics from career building, to landscape composition to portraiture, to knowing how to create an underpainting.  On top of that we host workshops throughout the year.  Come grow your skills!
