Painted Toe Society

The Painted Toe Society grew out of the Art Education program at Foothills Art Center. Artists in Jackie McFarland’s (one of the founders of FAC, and much loved artist and teacher) painting class decided to continue painting together, sharing ideas and techniques, and supporting individual approaches to art. This lively group is diverse in styles, media, and levels of experience.

Currently the Painted Toe Society is looking for new members who would like to paint with our group. Please join us on a Monday as our guest to get acquainted! We meet Mondays from about 9am – 2pm. in the Petersen Classroom.  Fee is $20.00 per person per month if you decide to join.  Please contact Joyce Shelton at, or Patricia Rucker at to join!
