Our November meeting will take place a week early  Sunday October 25th.  The program will be a field trip to the Mexican Fine Arts Museum in the Pilsen neighborhood, followed by lunch at a local Mexican Restaurant.
We have scheduled a guided tour of the museum and their “Day of the Dead” exhibit at 11:00 am, led by a member of the museum’s Education Department. (Tours are not available on our regular meeting date of Nov 1st, the actual Day of the Dead, due to large attendance expected that day).  Please email Maureen McDonald at if you plan on attending.  Members can coordinate for carpooling and rides will be available

Rescuing and recycling a hard cover book, students will utilize its structure; gluing pages together forming a sturdy substrate for self-expression with imagery and written words. This class promises to open doors to creative adventure by manipulating art materials with layering techniques in acrylics, pastels, watercolors, drawing, image transfers and collage. Students will learn how to carve their own stamps to use in their creative art journals ending with a rich platform to journal on.
