Art Forum Newsletter December 2016

Winter is coming. That's not a prophesy of doom and gloom - not for artists such as ourselves. It's a proclamation that we now have time to breathe (well, after the holidays anyway) and take time to create art. Those dark winter nights are the perfect time to sequester ourselves in our cozy nooks, at kitchen tables, and in studios to pour our creativity into amazing works of art. Go ahead, make something splendid!

Reminder: Art must be picked up from Noisette Bakery this Tuesday, November 29 between 3:00 and 4:30. Please, no earlier than 3:00. If you can't be there to pick up your art, make arrangements for someone else to get it please.


The Art Challenge is an optional "Show and Tell". Every month we choose a theme. Many members will create a piece of art from that theme, using whatever medium they choose and interpreting the theme however they wish. It can be a great exercise in stretching ourselves artistically. Regular Show and Tell is also encouraged.

The Art Forum Challenge last month was "Autumn / Fall. Here are the wonderful pieces made by our members.











Next month's challenge is "Fire". Or bring other Show and Tell art.


Andrea is teaching a workshop in Felting. She's a great teacher and the class is VERY affordable. Learn something new!

Be sure to set aside some time on the weekend of December 10th and 11th to come visit our Holiday Show and Sale at the WhitPrint studio. We will be filling our walls and tables with paintings, drawing, prints, and mixed media work from studio members and the community. This is two days only. Saturday and Sunday, 11am to 7pm each day. Hope to see you there.

Special guest participants include: Diane Sandal, Kristen Walker, Patricia Donohue, Sally Schwader, Sarah Grossberg, and Sarah Sedgwick
