About Us

NCSFA is a non-profit group, dedicated to fostering the appreciation 
and education of fine art in our community. Our purpose includes charity through scholarship awards to students, and f
or our members, we include education and appreciation through art demonstrations, including lectures, exhibits, displays, workshops, museum and studio tours.

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. 

Our Meetings and Workshops will be at the Rancho Bernardo Library the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month.

Our History 
The organization known today as North County Society of Fine Arts (NCSFA) was established on May 20, 1993 as "Poway Art League"(PAL). On September 4, 1996 we were granted 501 3C non profit by the State of California. NCSFA was formed for the purpose of unifying local artists, providing programs in various media and techniques, and furthering art education to graduates entering college as fine arts major.
