It can be overwhelming or intimidating at first for a new member to join a club. To facilitate and familiarize new members with the SAC, we have formed a "Welcoming Committee" which consists of  several senior members. These members are available to answer questions and guide new members through the "ins and outs" of the SAC. Please contact the club via email and we will put you in touch with one of our senior members.


EQUIPMENT
The club owns several pieces of equipment used by artists: a mat cutter, a special Dual-Point Drive Stapler for holding paintings in frames, several instructional videos, as well as books (all of which may be signed out), and a Praga press for printmaking.
