January 21st Meeting: Eric will be demonstrating the editing of photographs on a cell phone using a free App (available for Android and iPhone) called Snapseed."
He will also (probably) be discussing low-light photography with the cell phone.

The meeting will take place via ZOOM.

This will be a presentation introducing everyone to gel plate printing.  It’s a tool that can be used by anyone who enjoys experimenting with color and textures. Will be covering the basics to demonstrating how simple tools  can create complex prints. The prints can be for use in cards, art journals or mixed media projects.  Will be using acrylics, stamps, and masks.  Will demonstrate how to make masks. There will even be examples combining drawling on your gel print. Lots of techniques shared for fun projects.

On January 28, 2019 three artists met at a little café in downtown Prosper.  The gathering was the result of an online neighborly chat regarding the love for art as well as a desire to meet other like-minded artists who were new to the area.
