The North Louisiana Porcelain Art Guild was organized in Ruston, LA in March, 1963 and continues to be an active club with 20 members. The objective of our club is promote interest and appreciation of fine porcelain art and to develop skills in this art form.
Our current President is Mrs. Frances Burford, Ruston LA. We have members from Ruston, Monroe, West Monroe, Cotton Valley, Bernice, Farmerville, and Jonesboro. Our club meets on the fourth Friday of each month, September through May. Several times a year we have painting seminars conducted by various guest artists from all over the United States. These seminars help us to improve our skills and learn new techniques in the art of porcelain painting. Our painting is both artistic and functional, including wall art, dinnerware, serving pieces, tea sets, vases, lamps, etc.
We are always looking for new members and would welcome anyone interested in porcelain art.
Below are just a few of the talented individuals of the guild.
I started painting china in 1970 in West Monroe with Mrs. Olivia Pickens. I loved it from day one. I have gone for lessons in Dallas and Cisco, Texas and Louisiana School in Alexandria. I teach classes on Tuesday Mornings and a group comes to my house to paint for fun on Wednesday afternoons.
I started painting in 2002. A friend, Joye Hinton helped me get started. I had previously painted in oils and acrylics. I enjoy painting fruit and flowers. I really enjoy having painted gifts for my family and friends. China painting is a wonderful hobby.
