The Creative Arts Club "Artists of the Month" for April are Geoff Toner and Bill Butler. You can see their amazing art on display at the Montecito Clubhouse on "The Wall" near the back of the library. Other artwork can be seen and is available for purchase, simply contact the artist for purchase information.
The Creative Arts Club meets on Mondays and Thursdays from 9 am to noon in the Cambria/Mirada rooms of the Montecito Clubhouse. These are their “painting and creating” days, where members bring their works in progress (or new ideas) to our beautiful art rooms.
First, they put tablecloths down to protect tables from any wildly creative mood they might be experiencing. Then unload the tools – whatever they may be – paints, brushes, pencils, also canvas, board or paper and start creating. Maybe some music in the background and the scene is set to interact with other artists or just deeply concentrate on a masterpiece to be.
Members wander around and see what the other artists are up to and some offer constructive help as well. Art classes are offered in the Fall/Winter/Spring months. Our members experience top quality artists in media such as acrylics, watercolor, and drawing to advance their knowledge of a particular medium.
Beginners are always welcome, as well as more experienced artists. Each month an artist is chosen for Artist of the Month. The group has a closet full of resource materials and tools to help get the paint on the paper ready for the next process.
Come to one of our Monday or Thursday art days to get a dose of art and fun!
