The Petaluma Arts Association has been active in the community since it was founded in 1957. PAA contributes to the community and to the schools’ art programs by sponsoring exhibits, field trips, workshops and docents. Art programs in Petaluma schools are an important part of PAA’s activities. Activities are planned both to encourage beginners and to stimulate experienced artists. Quarterly programs include presentations by professionals from the art world to inform and inspire our artist community.
PAA is organized: * To provide a supportive fellowship that motivates and encourages its members. * To develop and expand skills and appreciation in the field of visual art. * To provide activities that promote appreciation of art in the community. * PAA encourages and helps develop art programs in the schools.
