Be our Guest!

Please join us at our next meeting as a guest! Introduce yourself, get to meet some of us and share our passion for collage. As a guest you will pay a $5 admission fee (if you join CAA that day, the $5 is applied to the annual fee).

See our Meetings page for more information and directions.


To maintain our ties to the community and to promote the study of collage, each year CAA awards a scholarship to a deserving art student. All proceeds from drawings and the second-chance table benefit the Philanthropy Fund.

In addition to a wonderful presentation from a guest artist, a drawing is held with art supplies for the lucky winners. Our guest artists also often donate an original work to a very lucky winner!

Members may also find a treasure at the second-chance table, where a variety of magazines and art materials are made available at bargain prices.


Two or more exhibits are held each year at a variety of traditional and alternative venues. A qualified artist from outside CAA juries for selection and awards. (New members are immediately eligible to participate in exhibits.)


CAA presents workshops at which members study with a visiting artist. These classes are extremely popular and are open to both members and prospective members.


The CAA newsletter brings notice of meetings, programs, announcements of all issues of interest to the members, and the prospectus for the next scheduled exhibit.
