December activities included a painting raffle, a split the pot raffle and white elephant sale ($129.00 was raised to benefit the scholarship fund). The food was excellent! GCWS members painted over 50 Holiday cards that are just fantastic. The cards will be sent to Walter Reed Hospital for wounded soldiers. Jane Hittinger, Judy Clubb and Carol Steuer co-chaired this event. Everyone had lots of time to socialize and produce their masterpieces. This may become an annual event in December.
Thanks to Kathy Lang for taking notes at the meeting.
In addition, Pat Lester reports that the fall workshop was a busy, productive 2 days of learning with watercolor artist Chris Campbell.
Day 1 - We explored various mediums & how they interact with our watercolor paints.
Using various techniques, we prepared our background paper for Saturday.
Day 2 – Negative painting was the focus of the day. All of us left the workshop with at least one finished painting.
