SPECIAL ART PROGRAMS for
Presented by BetteLou Tobin:
SEPTEMBER ~ MOTION ~ Paint something
showing motion. Running Water ~ Vehicles ~ Animals ~ People,
Windblown Trees, etc
OCTOBER ~ PLEIN Air ~ We will again
gather at a scenic spot to paint or draw together in the morning at
a place to be determined. Encanto Park was well received last spring
but the weather was too hot.
NOVEMBER ~ HOLIDAY SCENE ~ Try to
outdo commercial cards with your own take on a personal scene of
your own past holiday experience.
DECEMBER ~ No activity ~ Holiday
JANUARY ~ LOGO/SYMBOL ~ You are
hired by a company to create an artistic design to represent their
product. You choose your own fictitious company. Using only two or
three letters and only two or three colors, see what you can come up
FEBRUARY ~ TRIPTYCH ~ Three panels
depicting three angles of the same subject, perhaps, or three
seasons of the same scene or three phases of your life time.
Anyway, three paintings or drawings connected in some way.
MARCH ~ PLEIN AIR ~ The weather
might be good for another foray outside. How about the Phoenix Zoo?
APRIL~ MUSIC ~ Fire up your
imagination with music. Let music guide your brush, pencil or
fingers to produce whatever feelings you have while listening. This
can be classical, jazz, country, show tunes, any genre of music you
prefer. Set the mood with a musical piece, feel the colors and the
place it sends you to and put it on canvas. No LSD required.
MAY ~ No activity ~ Invocations and
The Phoenix Art Museum has tours for
groups available and they will allow sketching with pencils only, no
paint. However, they do not give discounts, so the fee is $18.00 per
person. If there is interest to go as a group, let me know and I can
arrange it sometime.
