The San Leandro Art Association (SLAA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1957. We provide a variety of art based activities involving artists in our local communities, as well as students in the San Leandro School District and interested community members. SLAA membership allows members to participate in group shows held at various locations around San Leandro throughout the year.

SLAA holds its general meetings, which are open to the general public, on the second Tuesday of every month at the San Leandro Library, 300 Estudillo Avenue. The meetings start at 5:45 p.m. and end by 8:00 p.m.

The meetings start with a half hour mingle during which members and guests can meet and get to know each other and talk about art. A quick business meeting is next, with an art demonstration to close out the evening.

 All are welcome.

At 6:35 p.m., a celebrated artist will demonstrate the process by which they produce outstanding work. We invite a number of artists, all of whom excel in one or more mediums. All demonstrations are open to the public. For information about upcoming demonstrators click here.

Information and photos of past demonstrators can be seen here
