Located in Ashcroft, B.C Canada, the Ashcroft Art Club was formed in 1967. Membership is open to all residents of the Ashcroft area and environs. We welcome all skill levels of artists, from beginner to advanced, including those who just want to support the arts in our community. Our current membership includes residents of Ashcroft, Cache Creek, Savona and Clinton. Club members use a variety of media including oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, sculpture and photography.
Members meet the first Tuesday each month from September until the end of April in St. Alban’s Church Hall at the corner of Brink and 5th Street in Ashcroft from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM. Our sessions are informal gatherings where members meet to discuss individual projects and can receive feedback from other members. As well, we conduct occasional workshops and demos to expand our knowledge and skill in various techniques and media.
We have a four day art show and sale every year in April - read more about our events.
