May Meeting

On May 14th at 7:00, Nancy Goldman will be demonstrating silk painting.  She will have a variety of examples to show and will demonstrate the different techniques used in silk painting.

Nancy has been painting for a couple of decades but has had a lifelong interest in art.  She works in almost every medium with watercolor being her favorite.  She began silk painting several years ago and has really enjoyed the beauty of the bright colors on the silk fabrics and the graphic look that can be achieved with the resist lines.

Here is an example of her work:

Please join us at 300 S. C Street, Tustin to see this demonstration.

April Meeting

Jim Salchek will be demonstrating watercolor for us on April 9th at 7:00.  He will be donating the demo painting for our raffle.

John J. "Jim" Salchak has been captivated by
the medium of watercolor for the over thirty
years. His paintings have been shown in
numerous local and national juried exhibitions,
including the American Watercolor Society,
National Watercolor Society and Watercolor
West. Jim is a signature member and past
president of both the National Watercolor
Society and Watercolor West and has also
achieved signature membership in the Nevada
and San Diego Watercolor Societies.
In Jim’s workshops he emphasizes the
importance of selective vision through
simplification and focus and using the design
principles to create strong compositions. Jim
encourages direct painting, getting the right
value and color with the first wash, to achieve
good clean color and prevent overworking.

March Meeting

We will be having Ede Streiff demonstrating in pastels for our March meeting on March 12th.  Please join us and feel free to bring any friends that might be interested.

Here is a bio from Ede:

"I am a Southern California artist who loves to paint and be outdoors. I have painted in oil, but more recently I have been focused on watercolor and pastel. Painting is fun for me, and I enjoy the process of creating a new piece. As often as I can. I paint on location. When painting in my studio, I use photos and sketches gathered from traveling to various interesting places. I have enjoyed painting trips to France and Italy. I have studied with varied and accomplished artists at workshops in new Mexico, Arizona and locations along the West Coast."
