Artists on Main has been an active part of the Osoyoos arts community since 1950. From ten original members, our roster has grown to over sixty in 2018. Members meet in Studio 89, on the second floor of the Osoyoos Arts Centre at 89th Ave. and Main St. (Hwy #3), which also houses the Osoyoos Art Gallery and Osoyoos Potters Club. We welcome new members of all experience levels and encourage visitors to drop in anytime.
In-house workshops, focussing mainly on watercolour and acrylic media, are presented by competent club members and occur in the fall and spring. Periodic classes are provided for other aspects of painting such as drawing, perspective, colour, composition and design. All in-house workshops are open to members and the general public; classes are for members only. In addition to in-house workshops, Artists on Main occasionally arranges for recognized professional artists to present workshops in areas of their expertise. These workshops are for members and invited guests only.
The following workshops were well attended :
