Hello Rivertown Artists!

Don't forget the meeting tomorrow night! Board Members and Committee Chairmen please come EARLY so that we can start at 6:00 p.m. We have some important things to cover befor the regular meeting.

NAMETAGS - Decorate one and wear it to this meeting. Artists' Choice Awards will be based upon the best ones!

WEBSITE DEMO - Sara Pearson will be bringing the semi-final prototype of our website. We will have a couple of computers running and hooked up to the Internet to show everyone some ways in and out.

SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL COMPONENT to the meeting this month is as follows:


For our mini-event, Lynn O’Rourke will set up a still-life arrangement and Vickie Reynolds will demonstrate a few techniques with graphite and charcoal. Please bring your own black & white media supplies, whatever you prefer (which can certainly include wet media such as sumi ink, pen or collage.) The following list is a suggestion only.


· Newsprint, charcoal paper, Mi-Teintes or other toned paper (just whatever you’ve got)


· Graphite pencils or sticks, 2B, 4B & 6B

· Charcoals (vine, compressed and pencils of various hardness)

· White "charcoal" pencil


· Kneaded eraser & pink eraser

· Cotton cloth scraps or chamois
