VISIT THE Call for Art Page FOR THE FOLLOWING ROUND ROCK ARTS CALLS.
- Canvas for a Cause- Round Rock Arts’ mission is to see visual art throughout the city of Round Rock. Over the past 12 years, over 1,000 artists have placed art in one of the government-run galleries over the past three years. We also assist the city of Round Rock with placing artists in the popups at Prete Plaza, along with a new offering during Music on Main. We also sponsor the Art Walk held in November in Downtown Round Rock. As non-profit, we have approximately $35,000 in costs, especially with the addition of two part time staff members to help keep the Downtowner Gallery open and have a place to introduce visitors and artists to Round Rock Arts. We are humbly asking artists to consider making pieces that range from 5″ to 5″ to 12″ x 12″ and anywhere in between those low and high dimensions as a donation. We will post your names as our artist supporters throughout the sale, and hope you will be able to support your RRA non-profit in this way. Check the call for art page, first column, to sign up. We are not asking for details- just the number and approximate size to ensure we can fill the space. Thanks!

NEW BOARD AND OFFICERS ANNOUNCED, STARTING APRIL 1
Welcome the new officers and board members for RRA:
President: Scott Feldman
Vice-President: Justina Mojica
Vice-President-Membership: Larry Raper
Secretary: Cari Washburn
Members: Petra Krugel, Charlie Fauvet, and Katrina King
To find out more about service on the board or a committee, please contact Nominating Committee members Petra Krugel or Larry Raper at firstname.lastname@example.org. They have identified two new board members to serve. We would love to have two more board members who understand the ins-and-outs of running a non-profit organization. We also need a treasurer comfortable with learning the QuickBooks online system we use.
LOOKING FOR WORKSHOP INSTRUCTORS FOR FALL 2020, PENDING STATUS OF THE COVID 19
We have great workshop instructors in photography, watercolor and portrait painting. It would be nice to have workshops focused on pastels, colored pencil as a fine art medium, plein aire, intermediate level of pour art, printmaking using inexpensive processes such as Gelli(R) printing, the basics of drawing, Zentangle or other forms of graphic art drawing, and similar types of classes. What we have learned is that evenings are not usually successful, we need a two-three month roll out period to gain interest, and classes should not exceed a consecutive three week, three hours a week class period. Sunday afternoons and Saturdays work well. Classes seem to work best in targeting older youth and adults.
Do you want to teach? Go to the workshop page to review the contract language and sign up to teach. The information follows the listing of classes.
Do you want to take a course? You can do that from the same workshop page.
