Are you looking for inspiration? Do you want to learn interesting art techniques, see professional demonstrations and expand your creativity or art experience? Join KVAL!


KVAL meetings are open to the public and held at 7:00 pm the first Thursday of each month at the Gallery on State, located at 322 West State Street in Sycamore, Illinois. We invite you to attend! Each meeting alternates between professional artist demonstrations and “Create with KVAL” challenges, where members have the opportunity to present creative results that interpret a current theme.
