Apr 12 Meeting Recap

About 25 members and guests met at Presbyterian Church-Broomfield. We started with an art supply and book swap. After a quick business summary, we discussed potential opportunities for art sales at "Life in the West Gallery" and at Anthem Ranch, and formed committees to follow up.

We also presented merchandise with our new logo that will be available for purchase in May and delivery in June. See below for an online order form.

Dorothy DePaulo demonstrated botanical drawing using colored pencil on drafting film. Dorothy supplied reference photos and film so that Guild members who brought colored pencils could try her techniques. Everyone agreed it was very fun!
Fall Member Show is a Go!
Thank you to our show committee volunteers: Sally Bullers, Carol Dillard, Barb Wagamon, Michelle Skulley! The location is confirmed for College Hill Library in Westminster. Stay tuned for additional details.
