Design Your Name Tag

We will be showing a DVD of the winners from the CPSA Inter-national Convention and Show 2018. You will be amazed at the images!! Is this really colored pencils? Unbelievable!!

Also, please bring your pencils and be ready to design your name tag. Yup, our new Prez wants to get to know you better and that means wearing your name tag. It will be a fun project designing a name tag that reflects your personality. Bring all the other tools you need to make your name tag stand out!

Lastly, please bring in your “Black Paper Project”, from last month. You all had such a great start, we can hardly wait to see the finished product.
