JLI's First Saturdays Art Club meetings
are free and open to all.

This new series is designed to focus on a broad range of aspects of scenery and materials & techniques for rendering them. Sessions will be held at JLI Studio unless otherwise announced. At each session the Club's Lead Artist will introduce materials and techniques, while club members develop their own visions of various landscape elements -- from trees & foliage to cityscapes. Participants will play with forms, colors & ideas in a social setting with others who share an interest in expressing their visions on paper. No prior experience or special skill required. All are welcome to watch, explore, and practice as we learn from each other.


Each meeting will begin with a display and review of member artworks-in-progress. Bring something you've finished recently, are still struggling with, or are just beginning. All Club artists are committed to providing helpful critiques to support each other's artistic growth.


This program will include an Art Show to display our creations for the public.


YOU are invited to join us -- to watch and to draw/paint/create. Come for a single session or for every session.

Please, sign up for sessions in advance to facilitate Lead Artist preparations.





Second Saturdays Art Club
PERSONAL BEST -- 2012-2013


This series of free art workshops offered participants a variety of opportunities to move their art to a higher level.

At each meeting club members considered how to approach the requirements of a current art contest call for entries. JLI Lead Artists provided information, techniques, challenges and inspiration to recharge participants' creative energies.

Club members pursued some ideas to conclusion and many were entered in the contests we reviewed.



First Saturdays Art Club -- 2011-2012


This series of free art workshops, offered in collaboration with the Haggin Museum, was sponsored by the Stockton Arts Commission.

Meetings alternated between the Museum, where the Club studied the works of master painters, and JLI studios where member artists experimented with the same techniques they'd seen at the Museum.


Drawing Out Stockton -- 2010-2011


This series of free life drawing workshops sponsored by the Stockton Arts Commission continued throughout the year and were open to everyone.

Events included a night at the Ports' Homerun Hill, a Downtown Art Walk, a Victory Park free concert, Wat Dharmararam temple, Dell 'Osso Pumpkin Maze, Weberstown, JLI Studios, Sherwood Mall, the Haggin Museum, Stockton Skate Park, Asparagus Festival, Mickie Grove Zoo, and the San Joaquin Fair.


Drawing Out Community -- 2009-2010


This series of free life drawing workshops was sponsored by United Way. Participants learned to draw faces, sitting figures, standing figures, people in motion, and finally, with the help of Stockton Animal Shelter Friends, animals.
