MAA members and friends, come and work on your art in the company of fellow artists. Drop in whenever you can. Stay for an hour or all day. You don’t have to be a member. Bring something you'd like to work on and your lunch and/or snacks. We provide coffee and tea. It's a lot of fun to support one another and devote some time each week to your artwork.

Carolyn Emerson shares this news:
"New member Kristen Dockendorf
her exceedingly well behaved guide dog with
her on a regular basis. Here Emma is greeting Sue Masse, as she does each arrival every week. We all love her and appreciate Kristen’s joining us with her best friend."

Left, Dennis Davey drew this wonderful cartoon of a bunch of us painting at Open Studio. We all recognized ourselves and were tickled with his drawing. He is an accomplished caricaturist. Dennis does hilarious little drawings every week when he comes and is working currently to illustrate a book of children’s poems. Today he took a break and drew us instead.
