Presidents Message

March 3rd, 2014

Dear Members,

There has been a change in the first item of the announcement below.   The evening sessions will no longer be changed.  The WednesdayThursday and Friday evening sessions will remain at the same time 7pm to 10pm.   

The Board would like to take this opportunity to update you on some upcoming items of interest.

Evening Session Schedule Changes: at the February 3, 2014 Board Meeting it was passed to start the evening sessions (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) at 7:15 pm, extending them to 10:15 pm to allow attending artists a better opportunity to take advantage of the evening street parking in front of the studio. After 7 pm unrestricted parking is allowed on Main Street. This would give people who drive time to get parked and settle in for the session before it starts. The effective date for this change will be the first Wednesday in March, March 5, 2014. Any concerns on this change can be brought to the Board's attention.

Members Show: Tony Chu our Gallery Coordinator has set aside September 13 to October 10, 2014 for someone to organize a member's show. Needed is a show committee to coordinate it. Any members interested in taking on this challange please contact the Board of Directors by May 1, 2014.

AGM: in keeping with our Constitution and By-laws the Board has called an Annual General Meeting for Saturday April 5, 2014. It is important members attend to take part in discussions and decisions that affect the long term running of this Society.

Feel free to contact my self or any other member of the Board with any questions on any of the above items.

Observational Drawing with Anastasia Andrianova

November 11th, 2013

This course will run between November 17th, 2013 and March 30th 2014.

The course “Observational drawing” is dedicated to those who need a basic knowledge in shaping three-dimensional space in two-dimensional works. The outline is designed to make smooth transition from simple geometric shapes into portraits and figure drawings. The skills obtained during the course will significantly help students to create their art works in general and improve their figure studies in particular.
