The Manotick Art Association is a non-profit organization with a mission to support, encourage and foster the development of artists within the Rideau Valley area. Itholds regular meetings from 7:30 to 9:30 pm. usually on the first Tuesday of the month from September through June at Tomkins Hall in the lower level of St. James' Anglican Church, 1138 Bridge Street, Manotick, ON. Always informative and a chance to socialize with fellow artists, the meetings begin with MAA business, announcements of interest and a welcome to new members. After a brief break for refreshments, our featured guest speaker, chosen from various disciplines in the art world will give a presentation. You can see a reference list of Speakers for a sense of topics covered. At one of the meetings during the year, we arrange for a critique of members' artwork by a local prominent artist. The membership is invited to suggest future guest speakers to our program chair. Get-togethers in June and December are potluck socials and there are no meetings during July and August.
