Do You See in Black & White or Color?

Last Thursday evening was the March "ATC Workshop & Swap" and the creativity was abundant!  Everyone used their choice of themes, "Favorite Color (monochromatic)" or "Black & White", and created fantastic miniature works of art using their favorite techniques.  Each artist shared their unique styles and everyone truly enjoyed the evening.  Overall, it was another fun evening overflowing with artistic talent.  It's always amazing to see what everyone comes up with!

For those who missed this month's workshop, make your plans now to join in the fun next month.  Mark your calendars & save the date . . . Thursday, April 11th . . . when the monthly themes will be "Bird's Song" or "Steampunk Ladies" Start “thinking big in a small way" and we'll see you then at this fun NO COST workshop.  From experienced to novice . . . you’ll definitely want to see what it’s all about for yourself!  Just create 12 ATCs using the monthly themes . . . all the same or each one different . . . then come and share with others in a true workshop atmosphere. Or just come and see what's going on with other artists, ask questions, share information, have fun, and become inspired!
Remember to save the date . . .
the second Thursday of each month from 6:00pm to 8:00pm . . .
we look forward to seeing you there!

And as an added bonus, we've got another "Challenge" for April ~ "DeStash Your Craft Room"!  Just fill 1 shoebox with items from your craft room "stash" that you don't have a use for any longer and trade for another shoebox from one of the other artists in the Workshop.  Just be sure that the items you put in your box to trade are things you think someone else might want or use. Challenges are voluntary, so even if you don't participate in trading a shoebox, we invite you to come . . . but you can't take a box without bringing a box.  We hope you'll join us!

Upcoming Months -
   May 9th ~ "Vintage Mother's Day" or "Cook's Choice!" *
    June 13th ~ "Send in the Clowns" or "Games People Play"
