Mission Statement

Local Colour Art Group is an organization of artists dedicated to the creation of art, and its promotion in the community.

Our Mandate

The Club strives to provide a forum for members in which to gather to paint and to share their interests, skills and experiences. It is dedicated to the development of its members through the provision of regular learning opportunities in the form of classes and discussion groups, and through the organization of regular art shows.
Members are encouraged to work in a variety of styles and mediums, and while the primary focus is on the art of painting, individual artistic expression through work in photography, porcelain, wood and clay is also welcomed.

The Club's objectives include community outreach. This entails the promotion of art appreciation by way of periodic art shows, the extension of participation in instructional programs to non-members, and the facilitation of other initiatives that encourage members of the community to participate in art activity.
