Monthly Meetings

Meetings are held the first Thursday of each month, February through November in the Club Room at Hy-Vee Food Store, 2700 DeKalb Ave in Sycamore, IL at 7:00 p.m. Meeting alternates with artist's demonstrations and a "Create With KVAL" challenge where members are given a theme and present the results of their creations at the meeting. It's a fun way to learn about various art forms and to share your work. The end of each meeting is time for visiting with fellow artists.

The December meeting is our Art of Giving night held at the DeKalb Public Library at 6:30 pm. We honor student artists from DeKalb and Sycamore High Schools as well as Kishwaukee College. KVAL members also donate art supplies at this meeting which are then donated to local organization to provide children with opportunities to make art.

Join us for a meeting. You will have a chance to get to know other artists and crafters and talk about your art passion. Check out our 2019 Calendar for our meeting schedule. Updates will be made throughout the year.

KVAL currently has one open position on our board: membership chair. Contact us for more information and to learn about each position's responsibilities.
