October 30th already?  Where did the time go? We were busy with many activities this month and November promises more. October brought us several great events. First, a truly incredible 2-day workshop by Tracy Frein. Tracy won the Exceptional Achievement award at the 2019 CPSA International Exhibition in Chicago, and shared his technique for drawing with subtraction. The following Saturday a PowerPoint Presentation was offered on the subject of uploading images at our Member meeting.  Additionally, many members enjoyed sharing their newest compositions in a helpful Colored Pencil Critique, an event we’d like to continue to offer at all meetings.

Coming in November:

2019 Membership due on Thursday, November 1, 2018

Please submit your dues if you have not already done so. We are excited about the many offerings in we have planned for members in 2019. Still, we are always wanting to know; “Is there anything different you would like to see?” “Is there anything we can do to better support, or any particular program you’d like us to include?”  – We are here to support your efforts and want to hear from you. Please reply to rforneyjr@gmail.com with your suggestions or comments.

Explore This! Deadline – November 15th is the final day to submit your entry to the Explore This! Exhibition. If you haven’t entered, yet please do so before Thursday’s deadline. There is a $2,000.00 1st place prize, but remember, if your work is even selected, you are still on your way to earning CPX signature status. There is no framing required and this is a very easy and inexpensive competition to enter. Visit CPSA.org for more information or click here for the prospectus. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I’ll be glad to help.

Holiday Meeting

Notice this is the second Saturday instead of the third Saturday in November. Bring a covered dish or plate of cookies, bring your significant other, bring a handful of Artist trading cards, and bring your latest CP artwork to share with other members and guest.
