Window display case exchange 
coming Monday  July 1, 10:30-12:00

  • Please pick up any artwork you have hanging in the showcase between 10:30 and 12:00 Monday morning. 
  • July’s theme is “Fourth of July”, so if you are a firecracker, please bring something to display next Monday! It could be red, white, and blue or whatever your heart thinks is patriotic. Share for all the world to enjoy!

Gallery Exchange is also happening on Monday, July 1. Where is the summer going?
          Please pick up your work between 9-12 and bring something new to show off! 

Our new Rules and Regulations: You may recall that we voted on two changes to our rules last fall. One has to do with the treasurer, a tiny change. The second one has to do with allowing outside guests to take classes. We just signed up our very first guest under the new rules! This could be a way of energizing our club with more people to take classes. 

The new rule states: Guests accompanied by a member in good standing may sign up, pay and attend classes and workshops with permission of the instructor and only if they will not be displacing Club members. Guests must pay the amount charged to members for the function plus the required RCSC guest fee per attendance. Guests may attend one (1) workshop or one (1) class series per month.

Don’t forget! We have an exchange program going with Artists By The Lake. You don’t have to join ABTL over the summer in order to take a class from them. Maybe you’d like a change of scenery, or want to try another medium or even another instructor might suit you. In any case, now is the time to try something new. But remember to come back to us, and share what you learned!

Zentangle class: Our education committee is working on finding a teacher for a fun and relaxing technique. We will let you know when it’s coming!

Take it easy this summer and plan on fun new things happening in the fall!

Most of the board positions are ending in December so we are looking for new board members starting in January. If you are interested or know of someone who is, please inform Kaj Lofgreen or Maggie Dutch, our nominating committee.


Palo Verde Artists Club brings artists together, creating a supportive atmosphere through education, growth opportunities, and friendship. We look forward to meeting you and having you join us in our endeavors.

Palo Verde Artists welcome visitors and new members to enjoy our monthly artist gathering and demonstrations, typically held in the Sundial East Hall, the third Monday of the month, October through May, from 12:00 PM to 2:30 PM. Monthly social get-togethers occur in the club room on the 3rd Monday of the month in June through September.

Feel free to stop in our club studio; we are located on the upper level of Sundial. Talk with our artists, and view some of our artists’ work. It is enlightening and a fun experience.

  • Classes are offered in watercolor, oil and acrylic, colored pencils, pastels, and drawing for artists at all skill and experience levels by well-known and experienced teachers in different media. You will not be disappointed.
  • Our club encourages sharing ideas, experiments, and critiques with other artists working in multiple media.
  • There are many opportunities for club members to exhibit and sell their work in the club gallery and several shows throughout the year.
