Welcome to the Eastern Shore Art League of Virginia
We are more than 100 strong. Our members range from beginners to professionals to patrons who enjoy collecting and supporting artists' efforts. We work in oil paint, watercolor and acrylic, in clay, stained glass, tile, metal, wood, pastels, graphite and more. Many of our members teach classes and workshops. We meet monthly to enjoy an art education program, and have additional planned outings and events every month. There's always a lot to do.

Al Salmon will give a presentation on Meditation for Art. Many of us have some familiarity with meditation, but Al has worked on tailoring the techniques for artists in approaching their creative work.
Paint out -By The Bay Alpacas, April 27, 10a-3p - This will be another good one!
- We will monitor the weather forecast ahead of the date, since we will need to change if the weather isn’t pretty good. People will need to bring their own lunches and drinks.
- Although there will be some chairs available, people who have chairs may want to bring them, or a blanket to sit on the grass. Not much shade there, so a hat, sunscreen and bug repellent will be important.
