Have a great summer!
NCSFA is a non-profit group, dedicated to fostering the appreciation
and education of fine art in our community.
We meet on the second Tuesday of the month, 12:30-3:00 pm, September through May at Carmel Mountain Recreation Center
10152 Rancho Carmel Dr. San Diego 92128.
We currently have over 70 members.
Meeting online via Zoom until further notice
The NCSFA offers seven demonstrations and one critique. Other opportunities include informal critiques, paint-outs, annual members shows and juried shows with reception, member exhibit opportunities, a quality emailed newsletter, this website, workshops and art field trips. The website also offers a free web-link for our members' own artist websites. Your dues support the art community: we fund scholarships for Poway Unified School District's college-bound high school art students, and offer a generous cash award to an artist exhibiting fine art at the San Diego Fair. In December, we offer a paint out, with a luncheon following. We don't meet formally June, July, August. Scholarships are awarded to graduating high school seniors continuing their education in the field of art.
The organization known today as North County Society of Fine Arts (NCSFA) was established on May 20, 1993 as "Poway Art League"(PAL). On November 26, 1996 the organization was renamed North County Society of Fine Arts. On July 26, 2001 we were granted 501(c)(3) status. NCSFA was formed for the purpose of unifying local artists, providing programs in various media and techniques, and furthering art education by granting scholarships to local high school graduates entering college as art majors.

Zoom general meeting
1 pm: Demo
From Marbled Paper to Finished Painting
Liz Walker is a marbling/acrylic painter in Portland, Oregon, who has achieved national recognition in
publications and exhibits throughout the U.S. We’ve all seen intricately marbled papers, but how do we develop those busy patterned papers into a finished painting? Marbling artist Liz Walker will demonstrate how to glaze and layer over pre-marbled papers to create layered, richly colored paintings. Join Liz (via ZOOM) for this lively demo where she will show you how she successfully resolves marbled paper “starts” and (using acrylic paints and collage papers) turns them into finished works of art.
