1. APRIL MEETING AND ELECTION
Our April meeting is this , from at the Darien Municipal Center, 1710 Plainfield Road, Darien. We will have a short business meeting right at the beginning to ratify our new slate (listed below), so please try to be on time. If not enough members are present for a quorum at the beginning of the meeting, we will have to wait for more to arrive and conduct the business between our two demos. If you are unable to attend the meeting, you may send me your proxy vote via email.
Our demos will both be about printing techniques, and we hope to have a bit of time to experiment with each technique. There will be a $5 studio fee.
Barb Boland will show us a watercolor monotype technique on a vellum "plate" that we can print by hand. This is an "additive" technique.
Lisa Dzuricsko will show us an akua ink monotype technique on plexiglass or linoleum that can be printed with some pressure. This is a "reductive" technique.
Both print methods allow you to go back in with other colors and media and develop the piece for a finished work of art, or just use the print for a collage paper for other work.
Supplies for Barb's technique: water colors (cheap pans are fine), brushes and small cup for water and a rag or paper towels. Barb will supply one nice piece of printing paper per person (you may bring more or even copy paper to practice with). Optional: ink pens, colored pencils or pastels for embellishing.Supplies for Lisa's technique: apron, Q-Tips, gloves
2. SLATE FOR ELECTIONS
Since we do not have multiple candidates for any of our board positions, our business meeting should be a quick ratification of the slate:
