Meetings 2019

Put these dates on your calendar!  We meet on Saturdays to accommodate our working members and the Chase meeting is the exception, still being held on Wednesday.

Meetings begin with a business/information session, then move to a critique of member artworks, and finish after lunch with a demonstration or learning event of some kind.  Members are encouraged to bring 1 or 2 pieces for input.
Critiques are valuable a valuable learning tool that helps us all improve our art skills. Also, feel free to bring excess art books or supplies to sell.

2019 Meetings

Feb. 16: Valleyview Hall, 2288 Park Ave. 

We have an exciting presentation for you at our meeting on Saturday at the Valleyview Hall!  Barb Klie photography and Mike Svob on values, with practical work time!  See below the photos.  Meeting starts at 10.  Bring a lunch and a piece to critique as always. 

Barb Klie, who is an outstanding photograher, will show some of her winter photos and talk about issues such as composition, contrast, colour, leading lines toward your centre of interest, and creative viewpoints.  Here is a sample  

We will also show a 20 minute video by Mike Svob on values, which ties in nicely with Barb's images.  Please bring a pencil, a sketch pad and a few of your reference photos that need work on values.  We will work together to improve the values in your image.
