We are in the "dog days" of summer and everyone is moving a little slow because of the heat and the on going "fun in the sun" at the lake. Well, school is about to start back up and summer fun at the lake will be bowing out over the Labor Day Holiday. Whew! I don't know about you but I am ready to get our art club schedule started back up!!! Like some of you I find painting an escape and much needed therapy.

To get us kick started back up after a busy summer we have a business meeting scheduled for Sept. 5th at 9:30 in City Hall. During this meeting the slate of names for our next term of officers will be presented. It is also your last day to cancel the Frank Eber workshop (Oct. 1,2,3).

After the business meeting we will have a FUN FILLED workshop titled "Start Me Up!" The objective is to loosen us up and have fun doing it! This workshop will be provided by Sharon Benningfield, Carolyn Seely and Selwyn Wilson. The basket will be set out to cover your supplies. Materials that you will need to bring with you are:
wear old clothes
1/2 sheet
large brushes
your regular stuff
an open mind
expect the unexpected
Refreshments will be provided by the September Committee (Sharon Mary Jo, Earlene)

I look forward to seeing you all and I'm excited about the wonderful events we have in store for this club in the next few months.
