Olympia Art League - Program Coordinator

I was approached by the Olympia Art League to join them once again as a volunteer... I will be their  Program Coordinator lining up guest artists for a demo each month.  They meet the 3rd Thursday of the month 7:00-9:00 PM  Sept-Nov and Jan-May  at the First Christian Church, 701 Franklin St. SE, Olympia, WA

Summer Paint-outs

When warm weather arrives, members meet weekly at various scenic locations to paint together. They enjoy the fellowship of other artists, and the special quality that painting outdoors contributes to their works of art. Non-members are invited to join them. A community exhibit of their work provides a finale to the outdoor painting season.

Art in the Community

Member artists have an opportunity to display and sell their art at community locations which provide good customer exposure. No commission is taken on sales. The work is rotated bi-monthly, all members are eligible to participate. Monthly newsletters provide location and rotation details.

County Fair Art-for-All-Ages

The Olympia Art League has been a sponsor of the fine arts exhibit at the Thurston County Fair for many years. The fair is a precious, old-fashioned event complete with 4-H livestock exhibits, ferris wheels, canned pickles and cotton candy. It is the League’s task to staff the exhibit, and to select the award-winning pieces from a large selection of fine art entries from all ages. Most League members sign up to take a turn staffing the exhibit at this fun event.

The Thurston County Fair takes place annually the first week in August. All ages and artists at all levels of ability are welcome to enter.
