LOCATION: First Congregational Church at 1980 Hamilton Avenue, San Jose

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are already here. I’m writing this a few days before Thanksgiving and realize it’s time to shift into high gear: gifts to purchase, wrap and ship (downer: the post office/UPS lines); cookies and holiday goodies to bake; turkeys to consider, or maybe beef this year; deck the halls, admire the lights; the parties, the hustle the bustle – and the fun.

Included in the fun part is our December holiday meeting. I’m looking forward to enjoying good food, good conversation, and of course, great art with you all on December 6. We’ll view our individual, always creative interpretations of the two photos in September. I know I’ve said it before, but our twice yearly group projects are my favorite events. Bring your art, gather your trading cards, wrap up your potluck goodies, and I’ll see you at 1:30 p.m. on the December 6. Oh, and don’t forget your eating utensils and plate!

Happy holidays everyone.

Barbara Weiss, President

Our October demonstrator is Barbara J. Allen from Zentangle®. If you’re unfamiliar with this art form that uses structured patterns, you’re in for a treat. This art form is often bold, graphic, and highly addictive. Once you start it’s hard to stop – a don’t miss event!
