Guelph Creative Arts Association is a welcoming visual arts organization, open to everyone practicing or interested in the arts in Guelph and surrounding areas.
Our members range from interested onlookers and "appreciators" to artists working in a variety of materials and techniques. Oils, watercolour, acrylics, assorted drawing methods, print making and film are some of the media used in two-dimensional art, while textiles, metal, clay, glass etc. may become three-dimensional tactile items of decoration and/or utility. We identify and welcome all categories of artists and artisans, whether professional or amateur, and encourage participation for the enjoyment of both creators and the community.
