Ronnie Klukas started her experience in the visual arts in 1990 when she signed up for a month's long watercolor class. What she thought would be an easy class turned into an adventure in learning. After being a watercolorist for many years, she is currently challenging herself with learning the mysteries of painting in oils. Klukas has been a member of the Manchester Art Association since 1990 and was named an Honorary Member four years ago. She has held many positions in the MAA; including President, Treasurer, Membership and co-chair of the MAA's annual June fund raiser, The Show in the Park. Klukas is also the current President of the Tolland County Art Association and is a new member (and student) of the Glastonbury Art Guild.
