SWCA's mandate is expressed well in its motto "Artists helping artists". The Society works toward creating an environment that allows artists to learn from one another in a joint artistic journey. Community is important to SWCA – many friendships are enjoyed among our members.
There are approximately 100-150 members mostly from Edmonton and surrounding areas. Monthly meetings are held in Edmonton at the Laurier Heights Baptist Church. The Society represents a diverse cross-section of the artist population ranging from novice artists at the beginning of their journey, to hobby artists who just enjoy painting, to the professional artist who sells his or her work or has representation in a gallery. There are even some members who are not artists but simply enjoy art. Everyone is welcome!
Our monthly meetings are an important part of the Society’s activities and are held on the second Monday of the month from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.
In order for them to be successful the following volunteers are needed.
