Annual Holiday Potluck and Ornament Exchange

Please bring a potluck dish to share with your fellow artists. 

Plus… this is the time of the year our members like to get a little Crafty! Members and guests are invited (but not required) to participate in our exciting ornament exchange. Simply make one handmade ornament and bring it wrapped. You may use any materials that strike your fancy ~ maybe create a little painting that can hang on the tree, fill or hand paint a glass ball, decorate a wood or Styrofoam shape, crochet or sew something festive....???? Your imagination is the limit! This has become a favorite activity for our members - consider joining in!
Just remember to wrap your ornament!

As always, local artists and guests are welcome to attend. Hope to see you there!

It’s that time of the year to have some fun

We will celebrate with Cake and our Annual "Handmade Card" Exchange.

If you would like to participate in the Card Exchange, simply bring one 'created by you' card. It can be hand drawn, painted, etc. Remember to put your card in an envelope. Cards will be exchanged during the break. This has become a fun and creative way for us to share a little bit of our art with each other.

Our scheduled presenter is Latimer Member Sharon Welker

Sharon will give a demonstration on “Printing Without a Press Using Gelli Plate”.

Gelli plate printing is a fast, spontaneous and exciting art expression with endless possibilities.  You can explore color, design and composition using this process.  Demo will cover additive & subtractive  techniques, gelli print examples, material list and some reference material.  Also included, recipe for making a gelli plate and the pros & cons of store bought vs home-made plates.
As always, guests are welcome to attend. Hope to see you there!
