Membership Information

Our Mission

The Mission of the Lake Houston Area Artists is to encourage artistic development of local professional and amateur artists and cultivate an appreciation of the visual arts through education, exhibition and community outreach.

Lake Houston Area Artists is organized and operated for education, pleasure, recreation, and other nonprofit purposes; no part of the net earnings goes to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual.

Monthly Meetings

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday evening of each month from September through May.  Typically, each meeting begins with a short business discussion, followed by a demonstration by an artist in a specific medium. Often the meeting involves our Artwork Show and Tell. Many of our meetings offer group participation so you can learn different techniques.

Our December meeting departs from our standard format above. The December meeting is a festive holiday dinner at a local restaurant where we award a scholarship to a Lone Star College Student.

Art Shows

LHAA sponsors two local judged art shows each year, one in the fall and one in the spring. All LHAA members are encouraged to participate in our shows. Participation in the show is limited to our members and other LSAG members. Information and entry forms are available online and at our monthly meetings. Winners from our show (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 1st honorable mention) are eligible to enter the annual LSAG show.

Public Viewing Exposure

LHAA members who volunteer their time will have the opportunity to have their artwork selected to hang in our scheduled hangings at the Kingwood Library and other locations at the discretion of our Community Art Display Chairs.

LSAG Membership and Shows

Membership in LHAA includes membership in LSAG or the Lone Star Art Guild. The LSAG is an umbrella organization made up of 18 independent art leagues located within a 200 mile radius of Houston, Texas. Each year an annual convention is held where the winners of all the local member art club shows come together and compete in the LSAG show. More information can be found at


The dues are $40 for the season for regular members, and $10 for students.
