Our Members

Chaparral Artists is home to creative individuals of all artistic styles and mediums of choice. Many of our members found their voice in the perfect medium for them, while others enjoy multiple mediums!

We want to be there for one another and we are happy to share our experiences and lend advice where we can. To do this, we invite our members to share their biographies, artistic adventures, or wax eloquent about why they chose their favorite medium.​ These stories and other information about our members will be shared on this page.

September 2021
We do not yet have anyone showing work at the Center for Healthy Generations, but we are hoping to rectify this soon!

Kim Clements and Beverly Schmuckle are displaying their art for the month September at the Presbyterian Church in Yucca Valley. Kim Clements is a photographer sharing homegrown scenes of desert beauty while Beverly Schmuckle has a lovely array of watercolors, mixed media, and acrylic works.
