SAQA IN is a gregarious, welcoming, and eclectic group of artists. We range from JAMS to eager beginners. Members are supported, applauded, encouraged, and valued as we pursue our creative journeys. We are delighted to gather together to share a meal, view an exhibit, share our work, or learn new skills. Activities include meetings; Zoom and In-person, retreats, workshops, museum visits, gallery walks, calls for entry, challenges, book studies, lectures, critiques, mentoring, sharing of information, group outings, Local Connection/POD meetings, and using SAQA Resources to grow skills and knowledge.

SAQA Indiana partners with other SAQA regions in calls for entry and to enjoy seeing exhibitions and museum events. Monthly Zoom meetings keep us connected, as does our private SAQA IN Members Only Facebook page. Contact SAQA IN Regional Rep, Pamela Mick, ( to learn about upcoming meetings and events. In-person meetings are scheduled whenever exhibitions, juried shows, or retreats occur. We strive to schedule these outings in different areas of the state so that all regions are included.

Our Zoom Meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month beginning at 3:00 pm EDT. We especially enjoy our “Artists’ Expressions”/show and tell. Zoom Meetings have become an integral part of communicating information by providing well-known speakers who share their creative processes through lectures, live demonstrations, and skill sharing.

We host a private Facebook page, SAQA IN Members Only, for Indiana members and affiliates. We share work, ideas, and reminders of upcoming deadlines and events. Members and affiliates may contact the SAQA IN Rep for an invitation to join.

We are excited to meet and welcome you to our artistic commmunity!
