March 8 - Violet Piper - Watercolor Techniques
This won't be a sit and watch
demonstration! Violet will bring a piece of paper, with a start of a
painting, for each of us. We'll take it from there. She will also bring
some watercolors and brushes, but if you have suitable ones, bring your
own so that hers will go around to all of those who come without. It
should be a fun day. Bring friends (first visit is free), and don't
forget to bring a work for Show and Tell.
The meeting will be at 1:30 at the
Central Presbyterian Church,
9191 Woodway Drive.
March 8 -
Violet Piper - Watercolor Painting Workshop
brought materials so that everyone could try to create their own
watercolor. She provided watercolor paper, paints, and brushes, along
with plastic cups for water and plastic plates for palettes. She had
already sketched a waterline and a hill line on the papers, similar to
those on an original watercolor of hers of a sunset scene of a lake.
Violet is shown at the upper right holding her painting. We
asked to try to reproduce the scene. We all did. A few were able to get
close resemblance to the original; most of us strayed noticeably. But
everyone enjoyed the experience, and the variations on the theme made an
interesting array, which we could claim as our personal takes on the
subject. Myrl Luper is shown with her painting at the upper left, Cathy
Niekamp at the lower right, and Tim Lowe at the lower right. We had
several guests and a couple who joined the guild today.
Violet for a valuable experience in what was, for many of us, a new
medium. Thanks also to those who brought refreshments and for all those
who brought works for Show and Tell, some of which are shown below.

March 23-May 4 - Art Guild Exhibit at MCC
help us make a good showing by contributing works. Due to the low
turnout for the last MCC exhibit, we are now asking that you let us know
in advance how many paintings you have available and are willing to
enter. Remember that you may not enter a work that has previously shown
at this location. If it turns out that our usual limit of three per
member will not be enough for a good show, we may ask that those who can
to enter a larger number. Please notify President Judy Franklin by email
phone (254-230-3539). Please do this no later than a week ahead of the
hanging, in this case, that would be Monday, March 16. Note that the
dates of the Arboretum and MCC exhibits are such that the same works may
be entered in both, if the work has not been previously shown in either.
Entries should be brought to the Ball
Performing Arts Center at MCC on Monday, March 23, between 2:30 and
3:30. If you can't get there, please ask someone to bring yours.
