This year a series of online adventures are being planned. Our hope is to have more member participation which will allow us to get to know each other better. Members can participate in as many adventures as they wish. Do try to participate in at least one or two during the year, especially those where we "talk" back and forth and share paintings, ideas, and opinions. If you have any ideas that you think would be fun, informative, creative and/or challenging for the group, please send them to Jill Foster at email@example.com . Some ideas already in place are: 1. January Challenge - where we post paintings and "talk" about them. 2. First Painting of the Year - where we share our work with everyone. 3. Sharing expertise about pastel products in the Thoughts from the Studio column of the newsletter.
