Palo Verde Artists recognize art group of the month

Posted

The Palo Verde Artists have chosen to honor different groups or classes in May, June and July, for their Artists of the Month.

The May Group of the Month is the Portraits Group, which is in its fourth decade of gathering with dedicated members challenging themselves with working with live models. They meet 1-3 p.m. Thursdays except for the club’s regular meeting day on the third Thursday of the month, held from October through May of the following year.

Participating members work in various media, including pencil (graphite or color), pastels, watercolor or oils. Most artists do head and shoulders only though some figural images are also completed.

There is no instructor, yet ample opportunity to learn to draw or paint from real life, see how others work and enjoy a brief group review of that week’s paintings and drawings in the last segment of time.

Models are scheduled in advance, and the group is always looking for “new faces” — call 602-368-4381 if interested in being a model.

The artists attending each session contribute $3, which allows the group to pay the model a $20 fee for sitting. Participating artists of the group must be current members of Palo Verde Artists.

See the Portraits Group artwork in the Sundial center, in the glass showcases by the Palo Verde club room, 14801 N. 103rd Ave. Membership in Palo Verde Artists is $10 per year and is open to RCSC cardholders only.
