Englehart Area Artists
The EAA is a group of people who share a common interest in creating works of art. Whether a novice or professional artist, members of the EAA meet to share ideas and experiences, and to develop artistic growth in themselves and others. If you are interested in becoming a member of our group, please contact President Linda Mustard or Secretary Karen Pilch.
Our monthly meetings are usually held on the
4th Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the
Rebekah Hall on Fourth Ave. In winter months
they may be held in the afternoons.
I received some old information about our club from Alice Sawiki, so thought this would be a good way to share it. It is in 3 pages. See below...

*Also- check out our Facebook Page...Englehart Area Artists. If you are a member of the club and wish to join the page, please go to the page and ask to join. I will add you to the page. We'd love to have you with us.

You Can Help The Englehart And Area Historical Museum!!!
At our EAA meeting today we learned about bathe financial difficulties facing the Englehart Area Historical Museum. Money is always a problem with an organization like this but our museum is in trouble. We need your support, especially as the Museum is where we hold our art shows. We can help the Museum by purchasing a membership.. individual or family. Another fun way we can help us to play the online True North Adventure Game which is sponsored by the Northern Credit Union. You can go to the True North Adventure Game heading on the Credit Union site and click sign up(after you have signed up you just need to click ‘Log In.’) After signing in you will find a page with ‘How It Works/ Start New Game/ Scores. On the How It Works page you will find a list of charities to choose from. Make sure you choose the Englehart Area Historical Museum. Once you’re in you get to choose the level of difficulty. The harder the game the more points you stand to win. It really is fun to play and it’s great to test your knowledge of the North while you make money for the Museum. Below are some pics of the screens you’ll see. If you have a problem at it, Bonnie Howard Warner is the Queen of the Game! She’ll help you through. Good luck... it’s going to help the Museum which helps the community and our art club.
The pictures below will help you work though the process. Hover the cursor over each picture for information.
Remember- the more often you play, the more money they donate to the Museum.
You choose a person to represent you on here. (I chose Brad...you can too, or another one of the fellows) and then progress though the multiple choice questions.They are timed so you have to be fairly quick-. You can also choose the difficulty level- the harder the level, the mor points you make- the more points you win, the more money the Museum gets from the Credit Union! The questions are repeated and you can play over and over. They do tell you the right answer so you can learn and have fun and make money for the Museum!
