MEETING 7/25/09: Paint-In

Hello, please come to our chapter's first summer Paint-In on Saturday, July 25, 1:00pm until 3:00pm at Bear Canyon Senior Center.
Bring a colored pencil project you'e working on and we can visit with our fellow colored pencil artists while we work on our ongoing artworks, discuss our processes and techniques, and ask about any questions we may have. This is our time to get to know each other better. And don't forget to bring a Show 'n' Tell piece, if you have one.
Please come, we can't wait to what you've been working on!
