Chaparral Artists hold their general meetings at the Center for Healthy Generations Building at 57121 Sunnyslope in Yucca Valley.
After a lengthy hiatus, we are holding meetings on the 2nd Monday of the month (none during summer months).
September 13, 1-3PM
October 11, 1-3PM
November 8, 1-3PM
December 13, 1-3PM
We will follow the gathering regulations that the Center for Healthy Generations is practicing (County regulations). Practicing social distancing might still be necessary. Masks should be warn by those that have not had their vaccines. Attendees will likely need to bring their own food and drink.
Chaparral Artists puts thought into outings that the group can enjoy together. These outings might include visiting art galleries, zoos, preserves and art festivals. We want to share in experiencing art and inspiration together, and this collaboration means that our members need to make their voices heard at meetings. If you have suggestions for art-centric locations, please share them with us.
In general we meet at a pre-determined location prior to the scheduled outing determine carpooling or caravan options. Anyone interested in participating any event MUST contact the Vice President and reserve a spot (contact numbers can be found in the printed directory available during monthly general meetings!). For some, the option to attend functions as a group can be helpful and fun, so let's keep this going!
Our Fall schedule includes one planned trip thus far:
Chaparral Artists at Keys Ranch - Night Photography
Organized by the Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park
TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED!
September 13, 2021
7:00 PM - 12:00 AM
we will meet BEFORE the scheduled time in order to caravan to the site and enter through the locked gate.
