Placerville Arts Association (PAA) promotes visual arts in the local community through art shows, exhibitions, art demonstrations, workshops and art oriented field trips.

Placerville Arts Association provides community outreach programs by offering yearly monetary grants to local school art programs.

Placerville Arts Association is the oldest non-profit art group in El Dorado County in continuous operation since the early 1960s.

The current membership includes both artists and patrons of the arts.
