GENERAL MEETINGS

Chaparral Artists hold their general meetings at the Center for Healthy Generations Building at 57121 Sunnyslope in Yucca Valley.

The monthly meetings are the 2nd Monday of the month with no meetings during July and August. We schedule guest demonstrators or guest speakers during the monthly meetings.

Due to continued concerns regarding COVID-19, Chaparral Artists will NOT hold a general meeting until the County regulations permit gathering, at which time we will re-evaluate before scheduling our first general meeting.

FEATURED ARTISTS

Chaparral Artists is proud to provide two Artist of the Month venues to showcase our members’ art year-round. Note - due to Covid-19 concerns, we had halted the hanging of member works. We hope to schedule art displays soon.

The Center for Healthy Generation
57121 Sunnyslope Drive in Yucca Valley

Desert Hills Presbyterian Church
56750 Mountain View Trail, Yucca Valley

Desert Hills Presbyterian Church is our first, and longest running, venue. The church provides a beautiful space to display dozens of art pieces.

The second venue is the Center for Healthy Generations. This location actively provides a gathering space for other art groups of the Morongo Basin, fundraising events, and art and fitness training groups.

PLANNED OUTINGS

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!

 

Chaparral Artists do not have any outings scheduled during the Summer months of 2021. Please contact ChaparralArtists@gmail.com for information about future plans OR to make suggestions.

 

Plein Air Interest?
Plein Air opportunities can be arranged for 2021 if the members are interested!
Plein Air is the act of painting outdoors in the city or landscape as opposed to creating art in a studio. It is a French term and most relevant to the work of the artists of the Hudson River School and the Impressionists. Remember to bring your cellphone camera for documentation, or if you are a photographer, come along and snap up some wonderful compositions digitally while painters find their muse.

Other trip suggestions under discussion include, Thousand Palms Preserve, The Huntington Botanical Gardens, Cabot's Pueblo Museum, Mitchell Caverns, The Getty, Norton Simon Museum, Reagan Museum, Palm Springs Museum, Pioneertown Plein Air, Calico Ghost Town. With more member involvement, more of these trips become possible!
