Meeting THIS THURSDAY 9/13/18

We’re meeting THIS THURSDAY, September 13, at 7pm at Jacob’s Well on Jersey in Normal, IL.

We hope you’ll plan to join us for Q&A discussion on a myriad of creative topics.

This will be our second Cross Pollination meeting of the year and we are tweaking the format a bit by combining Cross Pollination discussion and art sharing. 

Cross Pollination Background:

At an Art Circle meeting eight years ago in spring of 2010 two things happened:
Angel shared her frustration over trying to set up a postcard to industry standard print specs requiring a 1/4″ type safety and an 1/8″ of bleed and Janean said she had to google how to mix brown using primary color tempera paint before teaching an elementary art lesson. Angel’s type safety and bleed prepress stress was second nature for Janean who worked in mail order advertising for sixteen years. The brown paint thing was easy peasy for Angel who has been painting for even longer than that! Angel said aloud, “We should have gotten together and cross pollinated!” [And in case you are wondering, google gave two formulas for mixing brown. The first was to remember a Christmas tree and mix red + green and the second was orange + blue.]

NEW! Experimenter’s Cross-Pollination:

At our September 13, 2018 meeting we invite you to bring one example of an art form or art supply you have experimented with. Then we will take turns presenting our experiment to the group and answering questions that arise.

What have you tinkered with? Did it work? Has it become a part of your artistic repertoire?

[Spoiler Alert] Angel’s example will be the use of gel mediums and what she has done with them. Angel has a triptych of three identical subject matters with gel medium handled in very different ways on each piece to see what effect/affect they would have in the final piece.

We want to be resources for one another. We’ll go around the circle one at a time so everyone can hear both the Q and the A. In this way we can learn from one another. We all have knowledge to share. We ask for courtesy during the Q&A discussion, taking turns speaking and please limit side conversations, so that we can hear one another as a group.
