Hello Artists and Friends of the Guild:

Happy New Year!  The Guild is off to a busy start with several events planned for early 2018.  Coming up in February, member Brett Pigon will be teaching drawing for those of us who are interested in expanding our skills - all levels welcome!  And member Jon Houghton will conduct his very popular three day watercolor floral still life/portrait workshop Feb 16-18.

Hello Artists and Friends of the Guild:

Jon Houghton's watercolor portrait workshop was a great success judging by the huge improvements all the artists made.
Yes, it was warm even with the AC, especially in the afternoons, but we perservered and had a wonderful time.

Thank you to all the participants!

Jon is planning an oil workshop in October and another watercolor portrait workshop in February.

Below are a few of Jon's demo portraits for your amazement and enjoyment.
