ATTENTION ARTISTS:  Bring in a specific activity for participation in next month’s Activity Of The Month selection; winner will receive  an extra ticket for the Arizona Art Supply ticket raffle.

The activity for February is: do something in Abstract design, and bring to next meeting for critiquing and Act. of the Month voting.





MAY, 2018~ No activity ~ Invocations and party. 

 APRIL~ MUSIC ~ Fire up your imagination with 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.

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

FEBRUARY, 20  ~ TRIPTIC -Theee pane 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.

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.

February, 2019  

Sue Hunter 


Artist, Sue Hunter will be our demonstrator for the February meeting.  She is a multi-medium artist and will be demonstrating Texture Methods in Painting. 

Sue’s art is impressionist and full of color.  Landscapes, animals, figurative, and florals are some of the images that are subjects for paintings.  The play of light and shadow as well as contrast are part of the compositions.  Sue says, “I start with a photo or painting plein air and at some point my intuitive nature takes over, and the painting takes on the character of the emotion of the image.”  Sue also does abstract paintings and recently has started doing collage paintings of a whimsical nature.

A native of Arkansas, Sue moved to Arizona in 1960.  She is a graduate of Western International University and has studied art at :Scottsdale Artists School and with individual instructors.  She also teaches art classes in all mediums, as well as workshops at Shemer Art Center and in her Scottsdale studio.  Sue is represented by the Raku Gallery in Jerome, AZ.
