VAGF Monthly meeting Feb. 13: Color Composition – Annie Royer

newsletter01

Join VAGF members for the monthly meeting on Monday, February 13 from 7-9pm at Expedition Frisco (9073 Berkshire Dr. Frisco, TX 75033).

Come join us to hear about upcoming art events from Tammy Suh Meinershagen, Executive director of Frisco Arts. Followed by demonstration from Annie Royer on Color Composition.

A strong color composition is Annie Royer’s top priority in every project, whether a painting or an interior design project.  Through dialogue and demonstration, she’ll share some of the ways she arrives at a color composition that pleases her.  Because colorways are very personal, bring 5 or so of your favorite colors (tubes of paint, pieces of fabric, whatever is your medium of choice) with which to experiment.

We also will have a mini-critique. Bring a piece of artwork (framing not necessary) and it can even be work-in -progress for a friendly feedback.  We will draw for a prize at the meeting for participating Artists.  

Come join in for a fun, creative night.  

Members and visitors are welcome.
