If you'd like to join in the fun, join us next month on Thursday, November 12th, when the themes will be "Happiness Is . . .", "Brothers & Sisters", "Zingers From Grandma", and "Cook's Choice ~ Use of Fabric or Related".  Pick just 1, or mix-and-match from 2, 3, or all 4 categories, but 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!   It couldn't be any more simple . . . create 15 ATCs using the monthly themes (keeping 1 for yourself & bringing 14 to the Swap) . . . all the same or each one different . . . then come and share with others in a true artistic atmosphere. Or just stop in 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'll look forward to seeing you there!
And be sure to watch for our recent "Challenge" results coming soon!  We know you'll agree that the outcome is always amazing!  What's a "Challenge" you ask?  It's the perfect chance to show off your artistic skills, simple as that!  Each is voluntary and the "rules" are really very easy ~  anyone in the group can suggest a Challenge and everyone who takes part creates Challenge Item for "Show & Tell" using everyday mixed media materials . . . embellishments, paints, papers, stencils, whatever strikes your fancy! . . . then shares their finished art piece with the group.  What could be easier . . . or more fun?

Upcoming Month's Themes -
   December 10th ~ "Nighmare Before Christmas", "I Saw Santa Kissing
     Mommy", "Scenes of Winter", or "Cook's Choice - Anything Goes!"
Watch for New Themes for 2016 to be announced next month!
