Matthews Artists Guild - June 2010 Meeting


June 8, 2010 Meeting

Our June meeting began with a surprise Birthday celebration for your MAG Prez – Yes, I was very surprised! I’m still troubled on how they were able to pull that off! Yup, a milestone birthday – Let’s just say it was not my 21st. The cake says it all as you can see in the attached photo’s. For those involved, I do appreciate your thoughtfulness – Thank you very much (I think…) – Last thing on this – That cake was awesome!!!

The month meeting program was “Drawing” rather than have a guest artist demonstrate and present a lectured techniques – Which we will do at a later time. We got all our members involved with a little drawing competition and some fun prizes and award certificates that were even signed by the Birthday guy! Five stations were set up with 4 still life forms to draw and one station with a live Model Alex – She did a great job (Debbie Yacenda’s daughter following her Mom as a budding artist). There were some amazing sketches done considering they were all 10 minute quick draws. The interaction among the groups was a lot of fun and everyone sharing their experiences (I think the sugar in the cake had something to do with it) – The Grand Winner was Alan – He cleaned up in a few categories. It must be those weekly Wednesday night live model drawing sessions. Like I’ve been telling you all each month drawing is good for you! The other category winners were Anne, Becky, and Rita – MAG’s Master Drawers. Enjoy the attached photo’s taken by Cynthia.
