New members are always welcome. Currently over 250 members belong to the South County Art Association. Members receive discounts on classes and may participate in all membership activities. Each member receives invitations to all classes and exhibition openings, as well as opportunities to exhibit their work in the Member's Annual and Artist Member Invitational Exhibits.
Members are also able to participate in the annual Holiday Pottery and Affordable Art sale. Each August there is a Dinner Under the Trees meal in which Members are able to gather together and celebrate a year of art and accomplishment.
