Next DC202 Meeting

May 12, 2018
Techniques DVD by JANIE GILDOW and MORE...

Yes, we will be showing a great DVD called Colored Pencil Techniques: Glass with Janie Gildow. Capture the look of real glass as you follow Janie’s colored pencil tips and demos of a variety of clear and colored glass objects. You will learn lessons on reflection and distortion, as well as layering, trans-parency, values, application and more. A wonderful supporter of the colored pencil and longtime member of CPSA. She has won many awards. Janie is a formidable teacher and gives lots of useful tips.

We would also like you to bring in the project you are working on for our annual show, here at the library, coming up in July. This is a great time to get support from other members.
