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.

First Meeting and Critique of the Year: February 18th at 1:30 PM
It is time to meet up again. Join us back at the Lake Shastina Community Center for the first meeting of the year with local artist Ron Richards as our critique artist. Bring in one piece of art that hasn’t been critiqued before, either finished or unfinished and get some advice on how to proceed, or Ron will give his insights to your finished piece. Ron Richards is a professionally educated teacher and painter. He
taught for 40 years, beginning as a high school art teacher and moving on to the community college classroom where he taught the first levels of Western art history and a wide range of studio classes including drawing and painting. He has worked the last 15 years solely as a studio artist in Yreka referencing most of his work to the human female figure and social commentary.
