Welcome to the Siskiyou Artists Association (SAA) web site. We are a congenial group of Northern California artists who meet regularly to exchange ideas and learn more about visual arts. SAA supports local artists by providing critiques and demonstrations at scheduled meetings, workshops, and an annual show in late summer. Each year the association also awards a scholarship to a local graduating high school or college art student. SAA has been active in Siskiyou County for more than sixty years.

The beautiful painting above is by Ann Jensen and is the People’s Choice Award winner from SAA’s 2022 Annual Member’s Show last Fall at Siskiyou Art Museum.
Next Meeting: August 20th at 2PM–Demo: Rachel Streeter; Mosaics to hang on the wall
Rachel Streeter, mosaic artist and tile and ceramic contractor will demo how she creates a small mosaic wall piece. Formerly a music educator, Streeter taught in the Bay Area for 14 years before becoming interested in construction and was drawn to tile setting. Mosaic was a natural progression. She does small pieces as well as large installations, many from local materials. Join us for this interesting demonstration!
