The Art Club of McKinney, founded in 1914 in McKinney, Texas, was created to encourage the appreciation of visual art in the community. 100 years later, the club continues to support this goal with:
- monthly meetings for members and visitors
- lectures on art topics
- demonstrations and workshops of various media and techniques
- art shows for adults and children
- organized visits to museums and gallery exhibits
- field trips to “paint outside the gallery”
- directory of local artists
- online gallery for art club members
The program generally includes a presentation/demo by a visiting artist and occasionally, after a brief lunch break, a workshop taught by the visiting artist. Light refreshments and time to socialize are available at the beginning, middle, and/or end of each meeting.
You may join the Art Club of McKinney in person at the monthly meeting or any time by completing the membership application located in About Us.
