February Program: Bill Rogers Watercolour Demo and Paint-Along
Monday, February 8 6:30pm start - NOTE TIME CHANGE!!!!
We are hosting William (Bill) Rogers (https://www.williamrogersart.com) from the Maritimes. Due to the time difference, we will start his portion as early as possible 7:00 pm (10:30 pm his time!) Bill will be doing a watercolour demo/paint-along. So, have your paint supplies ready to go before the start of the meeting as we will not have time to wait for people to set up during the meeting.
The Zoom invitation will be sent separately along with the reference photo he'll be using. This way you can print it out to use as your reference as well. Don't have a printer? Pick up a copy at Eveline's shop. Please call before coming over 780-489-1028.
February is also BRING-A-BUDDY month! When you receive your Zoom invitation, you may forward it to one friend with the encouragement that they think about joining our wonderful society. They can find out more about our group at swcartists.ca.
