About Us

Mission Statement

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 pursuing their art careers in the area of fine arts.  

 

For our members we include education and appreciation of fine arts. This shall be achieved through art demonstrations, including lectures, exhibits, displays, workshops, museum and studio tours and other learning experiences in art. 

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 on Zoom for  this year 2021-2022.

We currently have over 70 members.

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 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.

Susan will be demonstrating one of her techniques in creating a  loosely composed landscape with acrylic paints. 

BIO:

Susan is a Canadian artist who was raised in Calgary. After graduating from the Alberta College of Art, she freelanced for several firms in Calgary but soon realized she wanted to focus on creating her own art. 

Immersed in the fine art community in Calgary, she began to draw inspiration from the variety of landscapes found in Canada. Her works are based on these beautiful locations.

Susan teaches various classes throughout British Columbia and looks forward to more international travel. Her talents include painting in watercolor, pastels, mixed media, and print making.
