We are a community art club of very friendly people who make our club a fun place to be.

Each of us tries to introduce new members to all of our activities and events, and make everyone feel comfortable. All of the officers are ready and willing to help at any time.

We have many events, a great newsletter (pdf), an online gallery, information about art classes and community art events, and much more.
Artist of the Year Award for 2015
During our January General meeting Yvonne Benzinger presented Judy Minter with a plaque to acknowledge her Artist of the Year accomplishment.

Judy Minter has been an active member of the Coeur d’Alene Art Association for four years. She comes to our group as a professional artist in every way. She works in trompe l’oeil, concrete overlay and faux finishes to replicate wood, stone, leather, and metals. Initially self taught, but took and taught many workshops as new products have been introduced. See more of her art at www.judyminter.com
