Introduction to the Lakeside Palette Club
The Lakeside Palette Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting artists and their work in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. We are part of the St. Clair Shores Parks and Recreation Department. See the newsletter for meeting dates and locations. During the Covid-19 pandemic, we are also live-streaming our meetings online through Zoom.
We usually sponsor two Art shows each year for members. One in the Fall, and one in the Spring. This year is a little different - we are hosting a winter online show instead of our Fall show. At the monthly meetings we discuss club business and provide either a demonstration by artist in any of the different medias - pen and ink, oil or acrylic paintings, watercolors, etc..., and twice a year we have a judge come visit to critique member paintings. There also is time at the meetings for refreshments and to socialize and find out information on what is happening in the various nearby communities, and on opportunities of where and when to display members art. The club also partners with different venues in SCS and the the nearby communities to display our art to the public - restaurants, city buildings, etc...
During the summer, the club also hosts paint outs at nearby parks, and private homes. On Tuesdays and Saturdays, there is Studio Painting at the Blossom Heath Beach House East Room from 10AM to 2PM where our artists gather to paint, share tips, and socialize.
The Lakeside Palette Club was founded in 1947 and has been continuously active since.
