Member Dawn Thomas will be leading a watercolor workshop at Images Art Gallery for artists who are familiar with watercolor and want to improve on their composition and technique. The cost is $100 dollars due on or before the first session, Monday March 5th from 1pm – 3pm. There will be a total of four sessions each meeting on a Monday in March.
This is going to be a fun ceramics class…anytime there’s a combination of wine and clay you’re guaranteed lots of smiles. And what fits better than creating a “Tipsy Tree”? Sign up for my class and I’ll show you how easy it is to create this unique holiday decoration.
Sign up here (costs $40) includes glass of wine and all supplies as well as kiln firings and electronic tea light candle to illuminate your tree. This one-time 2 hour class will be held at Got Art on 3rd, Friday November 17th from 7 to 9pm, in downtown Lee’s Summit, MO.
Now, can’t you imagine a Tipsy Tree softly glowing in your home?

Lisa Ryan gave a remarkable hand’s on demonstration of her creative skills at our recent Raytown Artists meeting on April 27th to an appreciative crowd!
Lisa is known for her wildly colorful collages. Her beautiful work is currently on display during the month of May at the Clubhouse, located at 512 E 18th Street in the Crossroads Arts District.
During our meeting Lisa took everyone step-by-step through the process of creating their own personal collage. The process turned out to be simple considering the beauty of the final outcome. Lisa’s instructions were easy to follow and her friendly demeanor brought a smile to all the participents. Thank you Lisa for a wonderful demonstration!
