Doors open at 9:30 am for meet and greet, with a short business  meeting at 10:00 am followed by a demonstration  and Pot Luck Lunch.

Our presenter will be Patricia Webber from Port Ludlow.  Her topic will be:A Process for Creating Abstract Art”

Starting with everyday images, we will explore various ways to find creative inspiration and then look at a gradual, iterative process to create abstract art.  We will look at examples that illustrate the process, including the initial inspiration, various iterations, and the finished artwork.  The presentation will include some discussion and a short, hands-on activity.

“My inspirations include rhythms and contrasts in music, nature, science, weather, and seascapes

I work in acrylics, mixed media, and digital photography.”

Public is welcome.  Cost for Non-members is $5.00.  Meetings are on the 4th Thursday of the month most of the year.  Check for specific dated on the Meetings Page.
