Welcome to our happy place! THE ART CHIX AND THE DUDES is a group of artists patterned after the Impressionists. We meet to paint, eat and drink and enjoy life. Periodically we will declare a “Salon Day” and will watch a film, plan a retreat, critique our work and generally enjoy the world of painting. Our one requirement is to have fun. We are not in competition, we just enjoy learning and being in the company of other artists. We party together:.
