Open Paint and Card Creation – Sat June 30 2018

If you’re interested in painting, drawing, and illustrating, we have the perfect Saturday lined up! It’ll be a great time with laughter, conversation, creativity, and the space to stretch out! It’s an open paint! All are welcome, including the public, family, and friends! It’s free!

Our special feature for this Saturday will be CARD CREATION. This will help you prepare for the many summertime festivals. Bring in your 4×6 photos or artwork items. We’ll have the supplies on hand to help you turn those into cards. You can either use the slide-into-frame variety or the glue-on-front variety. We’ll have plastic bags, too. You’ll just pay the base cost for the supplies you use. It ranges between 30 cents to $1 or so per card, depending in you go with the inexpensive or fancy style. We’ll have a range to choose from.

This would be a good time to bring some of your favorite original artwork photos to CVS or Walgreens to get 4×6 prints made of them. You can then use those prints for these cards.

If the weather is nice out, we’ll also do an Uxbridge sketch walk. We have the maps all ready. We just need some sunshine!

Note that there’ll be Yoga in the Gallery from 3pm-4pm. So come for the painting and stay for the yoga!
