Janet Scudder, The First Demo of the Year
Saturday Sept 9, 2-4pm

Over 30 members gathered to experience the world of Vincent Van Gogh – the Draughtsman at our Fall Kickoff.
One of our most popular demonstrators, Janet Scudder lead the way through Vincent’s life, his subject matter, and in particular his manner of sketching. Members were able to try their hand at his stylistic use of pen and ink.
Great fun had by all and rave reviews for our presenter and our new meeting space Church of the Good Shepherd.
