This month's meeting will be an Artist Social, Art Swap & Mini Art Show with an Activity: Texture Rubbings, looking at texture in a new way, with Nancy Champion. Nancy will share how to use everyday materials to capture texture in the art process called "frottage" or rubbings and share a finished quilt using the technique. Creating rubbings on light weight papers, tissue paper and fabric or canvas can be art starters and cut and applied to other surfaces.


To participate, please bring the following if you have it (we will have limited supplies to share):


  1. Sketchbooks or light weight paper to work on, or fabric.
  2. Art tools to create rubbings: pencil, graphite sticks, colored pencils or sticks, crayons or oil pastels (great on fabric)
  3. A small snack to share is appreciated!

Bring your gently used (or new) unwanted art items to swap with someone who can use them! We set up a table for the items to swap! Please remember to take back any items that were not swapped!

Bring one of your recent creative pieces!  We will have a popular vote for a winner who gets a gift card prize! Any type of art is accepted and paintings do not need to be framed!  This is a small show to share your work!  Oh, and MINI doesn't mean "small," it's just a small show!
