Can you help?

We need help setting up for the Symphony show next Thursday at 5 pm!  If you can help, contact Suzanne at ASAP.  I don't want to cancel this, but will be working.  I can't get there until 6.  We usually get free symphony tickets, too.

Also, we decided to go ahead with part of our renovations this week, while the paintings are down from the summer show.  We have painted the storage area and moved several unused pieces of furniture out.  We primed on Wed, and will paint on Friday.  Please let Phyllis know if you can help, so she can let you know the time (afternoon or evening) and if we will continue on the weekend.

September classes

Don't forget Mark Jackson's acrylic classes start tonight and continue on the 16th and 23rd.  All Monday night classes run from 7-9, but get there a little early to get things set up.  Here's Mark's supplies - below.

Beginning Monday, September 9th Mark Jackson will be teaching acrylic classes. He has asked us to bring the following:
Canvases: three 8x10s

Cadmium White
Ultramarine Blue
Cobalt Blue
Burnt Umber
Burnt Sienna
Cadmium Yellow
Cadmium Red
Yellow Ochre
Phthalo Green (probably what I have will do the whole class)

Brushes: they can be old watercolor brushes or old (clean) oil brushes.
Just a small assortment of flats and rounds.
3/4" flat
1/2" flat
#2 round
#6 bristle fan

Pencil, Kneaded Eraser, Transfer Paper, Scotch Tape, Paper Towels, Spray Bottle, Trash Bag

Something to put your paints on.  

I use a 12" x 20" x 2" porcelain pan.  When I am through painting for the day I can slip it into a trash bag and fold it down over the end and my paint does not dry out and I am not putting out new paint every time I start. As of this evening I have paint in my pan wet for over 3 weeks.
