Ink Drops, February 2019

Thank you, Barbara Keir for February’s Learn to Letter class.

It was a superb evening of instruction in Fraktur.

We had 3 new students via Eventbrite and they “loved” our meeting!








Thank you also for a wonderful day of Textura Quadrata.

Barbara Keir taught the one day workshop on February 23 at the Artelier from 10-4.









Volunteer Appreciation…

This was done in February this year…we LOVE our volunteers!


Envelope Exchange…

The name for whom you are doing an envelope was sent to you already. Thanks, Margret for your efficiency. Let’s try to get it mailed so we can display them at the next meeting! Don’t forget to bring them.



We have a full executive and enthusiastic volunteers looking after the library, supplies, the door prize, envelope exchange and outreach. It makes for some fabulous meetings and comradeship. Thanks everyone.

Member Meetups

If you have not attended one of these “member benefit” days this year,

C’mon down for the last one for this program year.

Pauline and Jeanine will be leading the demo on graphite before lunch and you have the entire afternoon to use the studio.

There is a fridge available for your bag lunch…and that gives you more time to make art!




Monoline Magic

Using a variety of tools we will learn a few alphabets and techniques to add to your lettering repertoire. Sharpies, Microns, pencils and pencil crayons, bullet tips markers…it is time to play!






AGM and Rustic Sign painting!
