Program Title: A Fun Show & Tell: Animals in Art!
Description: Bring a piece of your art that has any kind of animal theme. Do you have a favorite painting of your dog or of a farmyard animal? Do you make pottery dog bowls or dog ornaments? Do you take photos of animals? Be ready to talk about your art and why you chose the particular animal theme: is it based on your own beloved pet? Or maybe you grew up on a farm and paint to remember the scenes. We'll enjoy a fun time of discussion about animals in art and get to know each other a little better.

For potters who throw--someone came to my studio yesterday who would like to give a gift certificate to his girlfriend for a lesson or two on the wheel. Thinks she would like to learn to make bowls. I gently explained that there is a learning curve and it may take more than one or two sessions before she will become proficient, but he thinks she'd like to have the experience and currently is not in a position to take time for an extended series of classes. Please message or email ([email protected]) me if you might be wiling to do this or have any leads on who can. Not sure where she lives, but she works in the Saxapahaw area. Thanks! Cindy Biles ...
