JULY study meeting

We have found that full day study sessions are both popular and advantageous. In July many members met to work with graphite techniques in preparation for a workshop in November with Amity Erwin Parks. It was a good opportunity to introduce those members who have not worked in pencil very much to just what a pencil can do.  A very useful tool. I took a class from Peter Thornton at the Island Magic Conference in 2007. The first part of the class was working in pencil. We were supposed to graduate up to using pen and ink but the majority of students vetoed that! We were having way too much fun working in pencil. The lowly pencil has not lost its charm for me yet! Stay tuned for some amazing work that will come out of the workshop with Amity at the end of November.
