Studio Painters

The mission of Studio Painters is to support and cultivate all forms of “painting with passion” by sharing ideas, supporting each artist’s personal vision, offering constructive criticism, and providing a regular opportunity for creative growth. Our members have participated in Lyndon House Art Center community-based events and donated art materials to the Lyndon House Arts Center children’s art programs. Members come from the Athens community – both old and new - and enrich our group experience in so many ways.

Our group embraces artists across the painting disciplines, including watercolor, oils, acrylics, pastels and pen/ink drawing – we encourage anyone with a love of any of the painting media to join us. Our artists work at all levels of experience and technique – which means that it is easy to get advice and information in a low stress setting.  While some of our artists are award-winners and have been juried into exhibitions, all our artists are active learners – using classes, demos, workshops, books, etc. to become better painters because they are passionate about what they do and love to paint.

The Studio Painters meet weekly on Thursdays, 12:30—3:30pm, in the Lyndon House painting studio (August—May). Everyone is welcome – just bring your enthusiasm and an interest in painting!
