Subscribe to AM 1240 WJON on


ST. CLOUD – For several years now, a group of about a dozen watercolor painters have been meeting at the St. Cloud Whitney Senior Center to take part in the Silver Brushes group.

Sandy Piano is one of the founders of the group and says painting in a group keeps it much more social and fun. The group was formed to create a social element to watercolor painting.

“We like to paint together so we needed daytime hours-so that’s when we came over here,”

Join the ClubSilver Brushes meets Monday mornings to paint and give feedback to other members work. The group is supportive but also critiques to help others improve their paintings. The group also donates many of their paintings to local groups and charities.

“We donate to the Boys and Girls Club-the ones that are active in St. Cloud-we donate paintings and they have auctions, Piano says.

The group has no specific leader or instructor in order to keep things fun and create a feeling of community.

Silver Brushes meets from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Monday. There is a $2 charge with the money going to the Whitney Senior Center. If you have your own watercolor supplies, anyone is welcome to join the group.

“You get feedback and you get support for what you’re doing-and we have lots of jokes,” Piano says with a smile.
