Welcome to the LGAA
We are a non-profit organization established in 1948 dedicated to the enrichment and support of the arts community.
Our mission is to promote creative expression in the pictorial and allied arts by fostering high standards,
extending appreciation and encouraging cooperation and camaraderie among artists.
Membership is open to all artists and art supporters by application on the Membership page.
General Meetings are held monthly on the second Saturday 1:00 - 3:00pm
at the Los Gatos Adult Recreation Center: 208 E. Main St., Los Gatos.
LGAA members (or those considering membership) as well as guests are welcomed to attend to watch the demo and meet the members.

Critique of Members' Work
Each member may bring one painting to be critiqued by Gerald and we can all benefit from observing the process.
Be planning what to bring.
Ray plans to draw a portrait for us from a live model. He will demonstrate how he makes decisions regarding composition, perspective, proportion, value, pattern and the use of light and shadow - key considerations for achieving a good likeness.
