IAA Meeting February 3rd: Jane Kahler Oil Demonstration

At the February IAA Members Meeting on Sunday, February 3, artist and instructor Jane Kahler will demonstrate oil painting. Her subject will be a landscape in oil.

Reminder: Starting in February, meetings will usually be on the 1st Sunday of the month, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. and will rotate through 3 different types of meetings: The types of meetings are Roundtable discussions where members can learn of opportunities and give feedback or suggestions of what they would like the association to offer. Demonstrations from local artists in a variety of media and styles. And Meet & Greet gatherings where members get to know each other through facilitated yet casual conversations.

Note: Each month members should bring one of their artworks by 1:45 p.m. to participate in the  “Artist of the Month” competition. The winning artist is awarded a prize and artwork is displayed in the Gallery until next monthly meeting.

As always all gatherings are better with food! Please bring a snack to share.
