Programs

We hold painting sessions and workshops throughout the year in the Craft Studio at the ACT from September to November and January to May. Happenings are usually on Mondays, from 10 am to 1 pm, and on Tuesdays, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. A monthly calendar is made available each month showing which days are for open painting and which days are for workshops.

In our painting sessions, we work on our individual projects, sharing ideas and techniques as we work in our media of choice. Members work in various media, namely oil, acrylic, watercolour, pen & ink, gouache, pastel, pencil and collage.

Our workshops are varied and include lessons in drawing, watercolour, acrylic, oil techniques and principles of design; they are given by professional artists and skilled members of our club.

During July and August, we hold íplein airí painting sessions in various locations. All members are welcome to join in.

Whatever your level of skill, we are sure that involvement in the Garibaldi Art Club would inspire you and enhance your creativity.

Meetings

Monthly meetings are generally held on the first Tuesday of each month (September to November and January to June) at 7 pm in the Craft Studio, on the third floor at the ACT (the Maple Ridge Arts Centre). (The January and September meetings are sometimes held on the 2nd Tuesday, because of holiday schedules).

In June and December, a club dinner is scheduled to encourage members to meet in a social setting and get to know each other better. In December, the dinner is on the first Tuesday, and in June, it is on the 2nd Tuesday.

There are no meetings during the summer (July and August) however members get together to paint "en plein air" outside at membersí homes or on location in various locations.

History

The Garibaldi Art Club of Maple Ridge is an artistsí group whose purpose is to foster the growth and development of its membersí creativity and in turn, share it with our community. The club is made up of men and women, beginners to advanced, from the Sunday painter to the full-time artist, and includes work of all painterly media.

Our club came into existence in 1959 as the Garibaldi Art Workshop. It started with a handful of amateur artists who met in the Albion Hall to paint. Other interested people joined and, for a number of years, weekly painting sessions were held in the Art Room of the Maple Ridge High School, courtesy of the local School Board. As of April 1, 2003, the weekly painting sessions and meetings are held at A.C.T. (the new Maple Ridge Arts Centre). The Garibaldi Art Club of Maple Ridge is one of the longest running art organization in Maple Ridge.

Arts Council Logo We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Arts Council. The Garibaldi Art Club has worked with the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Arts Council for many years, endeavouring to bring awareness and enjoyment of visual arts to our community as well as providing opportunities for local artists to learn and grow in their chosen media.
