About ASA

 

For more than 90 years, artists of northeast Ohio have gathered to paint, draw and learn as the Akron Society of Artists (ASA). One of Ohio’s oldest and most active art organizations, ASA serves artists of all ages and stages of development – from student to novice to professional.


Through the years, the organization has built a solid reputation as a venue for artistic growth and excellence. Members grow from being part of its artistic community and the variety of arts-related activities it provides.


ASA offers weekly Wednesday evening programming September through May, featuring member critiques, technique demonstrations and art history presentations. On Tuesdays from April through October, artists meet to paint landscapes en plein air. On Friday mornings, live model sessions are offered at Akrona Galleries.


Dedicated to education, ASA offers nationally acclaimed artist workshops throughout the year and members have the first opportunity to register.


Our website’s Member Directory page links directly to member’s websites and our Facebook page gives our artists a broad social media platform in which to post their work, upcoming exhibits, classes and workshops.


The group meets at Akrona Galleries, 1765 W Market St, Akron, OH 44313.
