Presented by BetteLou Tobin:

  FEBRUARY ~ TRIPTYCH ~ Three panels depicting three angles of the same subject, perhaps, or three seasons of the same scene or three phases of your life time.  Anyway, three paintings or drawings connected in some way.

 MARCH ~ PLEIN AIR ~ The weather might be good for another foray outside. How about the Phoenix Zoo?

 APRIL~ MUSIC ~ Fire up your imagination with music. Let music guide your brush, pencil or fingers to produce whatever feelings you have while listening. This can be classical, jazz, country, show tunes, any genre of music you prefer. Set the mood with a musical piece, feel the colors and the place it sends you to and put it on canvas. No LSD required.

 MAY ~ No activity ~ Invocations and party. 

The Phoenix Art Museum has tours for groups available and they will allow sketching with pencils only, no paint. However, they do not give discounts, so the fee is $18.00 per person. If there is interest to go as a group, let me know and I can arrange it sometime.

For more information, contact BetteLou Tobin;  602-246-8109 




















MAY (JUNE 4) 2018 



Barbara Dahlstedt


We are fortunate to have Barbara Dahlstedt with us at the June 4th meeting as the artist demonstrator doing colored pencil drawing.


Barbara began drawing as a child growing up in Seattle. She went on to Arizona State University and received a degree in Fine Arts and specializing in graphic design. She had a career in the advertising field and was a freelance illustrator for 10 years before going back to school to earn a teaching certificate. Through teaching, Barbara discovered her gift of inspiring students that also fulfilled her passion for drawing and painting.


Barbara currently teaches at Apollo High School in Glendale and has received success as a teacher through her students’ success. Then, having raised her family, Barbara began entering her artwork in Exhibitions, Publications, Art Shows, and Contests. Much to her delight, she began experiencing her own success as an artist through many awards and accolades. As she writes in her Biography, “Now I find my passion growing stronger than ever as I embrace the exciting journey of inspiring others as I discover my own artistic voice.


If there is one thing I have learned, it is that there is always more to learn about art, and that’s the journey.” If you wish to learn more about Barbara Dahlstedt and view her art pieces, please visit her Web Site at:
