    For this meeting, we're trying something different. We'll have a group watch and paint along using video from our DVD library. Please register to indicate whether you'll be bringing your pastels and be painting using a table (16 available) or whether you'll attending but won't need a table. (We can accommodate painting while standing as well or you can just attend to watch the video) The public is welcome!

    If you are painting, please bring a drop cloth to protect the carpeting. There are several local restaurants for a take-out lunch or you can bring your lunch (no potluck this time).
