PROGRAM - DECEMBER 3, 2014

Nothing better than shopping for art supplies!
The annual Christmas party attracted over 35 people who enjoyed the annual sale of members’ unused items (lots of books), members’ small art like greeting cards and bookmarks, plus delicious snacks and desserts provided by attendees.
 
Decisions, decisions!

Contemplating the sale!

The interactive game, “Signature Bingo” asked members to get signatures on their paper of squares where topics like art class, museum visit, painting techniques, and home studios were in squares.  Members found others to sign their “card.”  From those completely filled, three were randomly selected to win a gift card of $10 to Michael’s arts and crafts store.  (The lucky winners were Jean Soller, Sally Wester and Tom Schroeder)
 
Members chat with each other and get to know one another better by playing "Signature Bingo"

Deb Ward distributed a list of new members and several members announced shows that they have entered.  Susan Grogan announced that she will move to Florida in January.

Fifteen art DVDs were added to the GCWS library.  Twelve of those were purchased from Larry Sparks who offered them for sale at his table of used items.  Three were recent purchases from Creative Catalyst Productions.

This is the final program of the year.  After a two-month winter break, programs and activities will resume in March 2015.
