July 3rd Meeting
Jeanette taught her cigar box class and fun was had by all!
I wish everyone could have been present for the meeting on Saturday the 3rd. We had a good productive meeting and then a fantastically fun class with Jeanette. Some really beautiful treasure boxes were created with all that junque1
Thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge this month. We had some very unique interpretations of Americana. I so enjoy seeing what you all come up with. Spectaclar!!
I think our year is going very well and I’m looking forward to the fun things we have planned for the second half.
Life in Florida is always interesting - with the possibility of a hurricane approaching. I guess when you read this it will be all over. But as I am thinking about the days ahead, I pray you will all be safe and will report next month on how the storm once again missed us!
Stay cool all, and enjoy some good painting/crafting time this month!
August 7th Workshop
Carol has had to postpone her scarf class and Lynn has graciously offered to teach this wonderful project that she designed.
Our next challenge will be WATER! The challenge pieces will be revealed at the September 4th meeting. The subject can be anything where the viewer can "see" water, can be on any surface, using any medium and a design of your favorite decorative painter or your own. The following paintings have been provided to spark your imagination.
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!
