We are so fortunate to have Stephanie Lee joining us from Oregon via Zoom. She will be showing us how to break the rules with style. Stephanie is an active ‘artists’ mentor”. If any one can get you going and loosen you up she can. She will be using encaustic, paint and plaster in a unique way.
Cindy Wilson brought her A game to our meeting Saturday. She had everything we needed to do our own Batiks, either on fabric or watercolor paper. There is no doubt in this artists mind that batik and it’s unique properties could be incorporated into a mixed media piece. These pictures speak louder than I can….
I, personally am very very excited about our up coming meeting/presentation. We have an extraordinary (I don’t use that word lightly here) batik artist, Cindy Wilson, coming to show us the ropes. https://cindy-wilson-batik.squarespace.com/ Not only that, but she is giving us the opportunity for a make and take! How much more fun could it get!
We had our first in person meeting last month. Boy was every one excited! Hopefully, despite Delta, we can meet again in September. Presenter TBA.
We all enjoyed our new location. It was comfortable and full of light. It was also great to go to the Riverside Arts and Farmers Market, and out to lunch afterward. So many places to choose from to eat! Riverside is truly a unique area and I’m sure we will enjoy exploring while are meetings are held there.
Our presenter Caroline Hamill taught us about wood block printing. Her work is lovely. Her husband pitched in and taught us quite a bit about the history of block printing. Members brought some work they had done to show off. We also received a challenge item (or two)! We missed a lot of you though, we are glad if you could participate via Zoom, but you did miss some details by not attending.
For our first IN PERSON meeting since last March. We will have social distancing in place. Only 35 people can attend so registration is mandatory. If you have a +1 please register them separately. We are so so so excited to be able to see some of you again. Our presenter will be Caroline Hamill and her husband presenting. He will tell us about some of the history of Block Printing and Caroline will SHOW us how to do it. I can definitely see using a block print for a base or a portion of a Mixed Media piece! NEW LOCATION:
More details to follow.
