April 3rd Meeting
Georgia taught this lovely mixed media project. So cool! Judy was the lucky winner of the raffle to win the original box painted by Georgia. Thanks for your generosity, Georgia! Great class too!!!
What a fun time we had painting Peonies with Georgia! Thank you, Georgia, and thank you to all who painted and made the class so enjoyable. This month we welcomed back several of our members and I’m so glad to have you all back with us.
Things are moving along in our group! Since the Dali Museum extended the Van Gogh exhibit we’ve decided to grab the opportunity to see this wonderful body of work. Tuesday May 25 is our date so I hope you all have emailed Jeanette to let her know whether or not you will be attending. I’m looking forward to a day of learning and fun.
I hope you all have a very nice April - it’s warming up!
May 1st Workshop
Pamela Varrecchio will be teaching this cute Giraffe. She will be supplying the pen and the class fee total will be $10.
Our next challenge will be AMERICANA! The challenge pieces will be revealed at the July 3rd meeting. The subject can be anything depicting the spirit of America, can be on any surface, using any medium and a design of your favorite decorative painter or your own.
We Have A Members' Gallery!!
Carol Hechler and Jeanette Seese have started our Members' Gallery at the WWSC. We hope you have had a chance to see it, but we still need more items to fill our walls. We are asking you to bring in art that you have done to show off your talent! If you want to try to sell it, that's an option.
We ask that you also provide a 3x5" note card or piece of paper that has your NAME, TITLE OF THE WORK (if no title, just write UNTITLED), the MEDIUM and a PRICE (optional). There are several shelves that can accommodate plates, boxes, gourds, miniatures, items needing an easel, etc. If we can get enough participation, we plan to rotate the artwork periodically. We hope you will contribute to a more "artistic" look to our meeting place!
