About Facebook

Facebook does not need to be intimidating. You can become a Facebook user even if you have no intention of using it for anything else other than participating in our GVA pages. You will need to create an account by signing up on Facebook using your own name so we recognize you and allow you to belong to our pages. When you have created your basic page set up, you will need to do a search at the top of the Facebook Home Page to find our GVA pages.

Note Cards by GVA Artists

Grand Valley Artists has put together three series of note card packages to sell at our various events and to our own members to help offset the loss of revenue from the pandemic-related cancellations of Reeds Lake Art Festival and our sketch sessions. Two sets of these cards are "all occasion" cards, blank inside, so suitable for birthdays, anniversaries, or just a friendly "hello".

Did You Know?

Dues and volunteers are only part of the picture!

Without the Reeds Lake Art Festival, our primary fundraiser, 

GVA is in danger of depleting its reserves. 

Every donation helps to keep GVA strong!

If you use Amazon, you can designate Grand Valley Artists

as your nonprofit organization of choice through Amazon Smile. 

Check Out Our Facebook Hangout

GVA has given us a fellowship where we can share our passion. Time to get into social media, namely Facebook, to share what you are creating with the rest of us! When you have a Facebook account, you can ask to be invited to our new page, GVA Artists Hunkering DOWN and MAKING ART! Just go to that group page and apply to join. If you are an active (paid) member of GVA, your participation will be allowed by the page's moderators. 

Could YOU Be Our Next GVA Model?

Portrait models (artists focus on the face) are needed on Mondays from 10 am - Noon. Figure models (artists focus on the entire body) are needed on Saturdays from 10 am - 1 pm. Costumed figure models are needed on third and fourth Thursdays from 7 - 9 pm.  Models pose for 20-minute periods, with breaks in between, until the full time has passed. During breaks, models have time to look around, meet the artists, and see what they have drawn or painted! We pay $20/hr/clothed, $25/hr/nude.
