October 15th Meeting:
Sketchbooking with Jackie Haugen
MEMBERS ‘’SHOW AND TELL’’ SKETCHBOOK - JOURNAL - ARTWORKS
Let’s get reacquainted! At the October zoom meeting each member will have opportunity to ‘’show and tell’’ their artwork. Whether you share journaling, sketching or other artwork, we want to see what you have been doing this year, especially over the summer. We will meet on Zoom and when it is your turn, all you do is hold up the art to your camera so all can view your artwork.
After you have presented, JACKIE HAUGEN, a member of Visual Arts of Lewisville will give a sketchbook presentation. She has been sketching and journaling for many years and in her travels around the world.
Members will have an exhibit at the Blue House Too Gallery in Allen during October-mid-November.
November 19th Meeting: Penny Eng: Monoprinting using the Gelli Plate and Gel Press Tool
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.
