Community Outreach Gallery

RRAA has been actively involved in various community outreach projects over the years.

Here are some images that demonstrate our programs:



Rio Rancho Art Association “Paint With An Artist” held at Esther Bone Library on Oct. 10, 2008. Each child was paired with an artist and did ‘plein air’ painting of the lovely scenery just outside of the library.




Anyone from ages 8-99 years old was given a chance to paint side by side with an artist from the Rio Rancho Art Association (RRAA). This was offered at the Esther Bone Library as a part of RRAA’s Community Outreach Programs.
“Artists reaching out through art.”



A Park Above

Common Grounds: A Park Above fundraiser event held at Haynes Park in Rio Rancho, NM on May 7, 2011. Rio Rancho Art Association, as a part of their community outreach bought two booths spaces and invited the public to create their own art pieces to take home. Other RRAA members, Linda Laitner and Cecelia McRoberts also had purchased their own booth spaces to sell their art work.


Art Expo and a coffee cup drawing ‘shootout’ at Cafe Bella Coffee

An Art Expo in Rio Rancho sponsored by Cafe Bella Coffee included a coffee cup drawing contest. A big thanks to Mike for putting all this together and to the Rio Rancho Art Association members who helped out with the coffee cup drawing contest.
