Monthly Meetings

Board meetings are held the first Thursday of each month, February through December at the Club Room in Hy-Vee Food Store at 2700 DeKalb Ave in Sycamore, IL at 7:00 p.m. Each meeting alternates with an artist's demonstration and a "Create With KVAL" challenge where members are given a theme and present the results of their creations at the general meeting. This gives members a chance to learn new techniques and see what steps are taken to create a piece of art.

We encourage you to come and visit a meeting. Share your knowledge and meet our member artists and crafters. Check out our 2018 Calendar for our meeting schedule.

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