Upcoming Meetings

May Meeting

Our next meeting will be Tuesday May 2 at 7:00 in room A at the New Brighton Community Center. Fred Somers will be giving his workshop "Pastels for the Joy of It" starting that same day. He will then be hosting our evening meeting. Fred is an IAPA Master pastel painter and the president of LCPS. His demonstration will be "Working on the Edge". Edges are both elements of painting and metaphor for exploring new ideas. Fred Somers will be showing examples of both photo references and the resulting paintings and will be demonstrating working with edges to create volume and space in your artworks. Don't miss it!

July Meeting

Our July meeting will be our annual paint out and potluck picnic. This year we will again be at Silverwood Park in St.Anthony at 2500 County Road E. You are welcome to come anytime, most people come around 1:30. Our meeting place will be on the island which is down the hill just to the left of the Visitor Center. They have a beautiful coffee shop in the Visitor Center. We will reserve the picnic shelter. If you don't want to do plein air feel free to work in the shade of the shelter at a table. At 5:30 we will have a short board meeting, followed by the picnic at 6:30, then time to look at paintings done that day. It's a great way to spend an afternoon.
