The Foothills Art Club is a friendly social group that meets on Wednesdays at the St Andrew’s Church Hall in Cochrane from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. There are monthly scheduled ‘paint outs’ at Beaupre Hall, west of Cochrane, as well as outside ‘plein-air’ painting sessions in the summer. The club has guest presentations and demonstrations throughout the year, weekend workshops led by professional instructors and once a month there is a ‘theme night’ where members share a special technique or resource. Also, a monthly ‘critique’ night is held for members to bring their work for suggestions or feedback.
