Live Monthly Meetings!
As a member of SOYRA, you will enjoy the benefit of being able to attend in-person monthly meetings. This is a great opportunity for you to meet and network with other artists.
Members Meetings are organized so you can find out all the latest SOYRA news including everything you need to know about upcoming shows and exhibitions.
SOYRA works hard to bring you engaging learning opportunities presented by a variety of qualified art professionals. Every month, you will have the opportunity to listen to a presentation from a guest speaker or watch a guest artist demo their techniques.
Your SOYRA Members Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month in the Aurora Armoury located at 89 Mosley Street, Aurora, Ontario. Doors open at 6:30pm and the meetings start at 7:00pm sharp.
SOYRA operates on a calendar basis from January 1 to December 31 with a break from monthly meetings during the months of July and August.
