Welcome to Community Arts Association - Celebrating 50 Years of Service to the Art Community

Our January general meeting featured a pastel demonstration by artist Christina Debarry. The image above is of the floral she completed in less than an hour at our meeting! Christina has won numerous awards, been featured in books and artists' magazines. She is a past president of the Pastel Society of America. Her impresssionist inspired paintings, featuring luscious color and elegantly captured light are truly beautiful. Christina offers many classes for students of all skill levels. Contact her at debarrystudio@gmail.com for information.
