Santa Clara Art

The Santa Clara Art Association(SCAA) was formed in 1973 as a continuation of Mission City Artists established 1964. SCAA is a non-for-profit civic organization staffed entirely by volunteers. Our goal is to build a community of visual artists and those who appreciate art in the City of Santa Clara and environs. As early supporters of the Triton Museum of Art, we helped raise funds for its building. We operate in relationship with the Triton Museum, the City's cultural Advisory Commission, the City Manager's Office and are members of the Santa Clara Arts and Historical Consortium.

The Santa Clara Art Association provides educational opportunities for its members and the larger community with free art demonstrations and lectures. The association works to develop venues for its members to present their work to the public as well as in-club exhibits.

Regular meetings are held at 6:30pm on the first Wednesday of each month (except July and December) in the cafeteria of the Santa Clara City Hall, 1500 Warburton Avenue, Santa Clara. Members display their work at each meeting, and vote for their favorite piece. Each regular meeting also features a demonstration by a guest artist. Refreshments are served. These meetings are open to the public, and guests are welcome!

“Artist of the Year” awards are presented at the annual holiday party/installation banquet. The SCAA also publishes a monthly newsletter that contains timely information about art events.
