Thank You Lydia Pottoff for a great presentation!

Last night at our monthly member’s meeting at the Great Frame Up (430 Main St, Longmont, CO 80501), Lydia Pottoff gave a demonstration and talk about using pastel paints.

She discussed the types of paints she uses, the paper and other techniques. She also discussed how she works plein air painting. 

Be sure to join us next month on February 8th at 6:30pm for our Artists’ Social where we will be using color pencils to draw wrapped candy as our subject.  We will also have an art swap, mini show (with prizes!) and a raffle!

Open to members and anyone else who wants to have an artsy good time!
