It’s on the first Thursday of the month from 7 until 9 at Thornhill, but it’s not a program. Nature Artists’ Guild members will be painting together, but it’s not a paint-out. Members will be creating finished paintings, but it’s not a fundraiser.
It’s Painting-in-the Round! This new event, on Thursday, September 3, 2015, led by Connie Devendorf and Susan Bartlett, is a gathering of Nature Artists Guild members for no other purpose than to have fun, enjoy the company of fellow artists, and create a one-of-a kind acrylic painting to bring home.
Each round table will seat several artists, and there will be a still-life of natural objects and plants in the center. Each artist will be given a prepared (with black gesso) 12 x 12 canvas to begin painting on. After a certain length of time, Connie or Susan will give the signal and each artist will pass their canvas to their neighbor to continue painting on it. This continues until each canvas has gone all around the table and comes back to the original artist, who gets to take it home! Maybe it is a small “masterpiece”, or maybe not. Either way, it is sure to be an evening filled with laughs and creativity.
All supplies will be provided at no cost for members, so please contact Susan Bartlett or Gail Diedrichsen to let them know if you’d like to participate as soon as possible, so they know approximately how many canvases to bring. Nature Artists’ Guild members will find Susan and Gail’s contact information in their Yearbook.
