January Demo Presented by Debbie Rasberry

MAG is proud to have as our guest, Debbie Rasberry, pastel artist. She says she understands the trials artists go through. "My art continues to evolve through frequent classes, workshops, exposure to books and DVD workshops by master level pastelists, my "family" of fellow artist friends and forging ahead through trial and error." Her subjects are primarily landscapes, especially water, marshes and mountain scenes using photos, as well as, en plein air. She is a board member of the Piedmont Pastel Society.

Join us! We meet Tuesday, January 11th, at 7 PM but come early... social time is 6:30 PM. The location is the Matthews Community Center. Meetings are always free and open to the public.
