Welcome to CAL

California Art League (CAL) is founded on the belief that when individual artists join together in creating their destinies, their growth and impact is multiplied in their lives and throughout the world. With visual art exhibitions, ongoing education and creative interaction, we empower artists to fulfill their highest potential. 
Meetings and Workshops

CAL provides a variety of activities and educational programming to its members.  Quarterly membership meetings are held which feature exciting demonstrations or presentations by renowned artists and art professionals. Corresponding workshops may also be offered. There are also paint outs and field trips planned to local museums a few times a year. These events give members the opportunity to meet, socialize and interact with fellow artists.     

General Membership Meetings:

Our general membership meetings are held monthly (4 times a year) on the third Tuesday of selected months at the San Fernando Valley Arts & Cultural Center in Tarzana.  Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m.  Members and guests are welcome.  The address is 18312 Oxnard Street, Tarzana 91364.  Our general membership meetings begin with a very short business meeting, followed by the presentation.   Details on dates can be found in our most recent newsletter and/or the "UPCOMING EVENTS" box at the top right of this page.

Suggested donation at entrance is $5 for members, $8 for guests.  Non members are welcome as guests.                                


CAL puts on four juried art exhibits each year.  All exhibiting members are invited to participate. The exhibits alternate between two strikingly different venues.  Two are three-month exhibits at the Blinn House in Pasadena.  The other two are 3-week exhibits at the San Fernando Valley Arts & Cultural Center in Tarzana..  Our juried exhibits have cash prizes, merchandise awards, and honorable mentions.  Accepted works become available for sale and remain on exhibit at the Blinn House or the SFV Arts & Cultural Centerr for the duration of the exhibit.  

CAL welcomes all levels of artists to join us whether you are a professional or a beginner. Painters, sculptors, photographers and collage artists are welcome.  All genres, including abstract modern art, traditional realism, portraits, still life, landscape, cityscape, wildlife and everything in between are accepted.
