Mount Ida Painters Guild

Mount Ida Painters Guild, was formed as a social gathering of like minded artists, to meet once a week, and paint together. By consensus we occasionally invite an artist to our meeting to instruct or demonstrate a technique. However, as a rule, no formal instruction is given, never-the-less we learn an amazing amount of artistic information from each other. As well as critique, we offer our fellow members new ideas.

We always welcome new members and a variety of mediums. Membership is $15.00 per year.

Mainly our mission is to meet and exchange ideas, socially and informally, and enjoy a day painting together.
