What’s Happening at the Alliance

We Make Art Happen™

We’re a friendly bunch of artists who like to get together and share our creative passions.

The pandemic hasn’t stopped us! We’ve got a full calendar of Zoom events, so come and join us for these great events.

Each month we offer a variety of artist opportunities:

Monthly Arts Networking Meeting – a free event, the first Tuesday of each month where we share our creative challenge pieces and give/get feedback

Figure Drawing Sessions – both long and short pose and occasionally costumed. 18 years of age or older.

Figure Drawing on Zoom – short, athletic gesture poses, from 1- to 20-minutes
Long Pose Figure Study – after a few warmup poses, the model takes one pose for the remainder of the session

Online Arts Workshops – come polish your skills or learn new ones to enhance your creative pursuits… learn more

Writers’ Group – Meets the second Saturday of each month… learn more

Spotlight on Creatives – the first article in a new series of artist interviews, highlighting members and creatives in the greater Stratford area and others connected with the Alliance… read article.
