Trees: A society grows great… opening August 19 at Valley House

OH HAPPY DAY Lu Ann Barrow oil on canvas

A society grows great when old men plant Trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.

This Greek Proverb is the inspiration for our upcoming exhibition on the theme of TREES. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center.

JOIN US for the opening reception on Saturday, August 19, 6:00pm-8:00pm.

PREVIEWS BEGIN next Tuesday, August 15, as we are painting the gallery walls and waxing the cork floors this week!

IAALOGO2016RedBlack150

Irving Art Association presents:

Tree art with paint drips & splats plus negative painting

Sunday, July 17, 2016  to

Jaycee Park Center for the Arts 1975 Puritan Drive, Irving, TX

Sharon Giles will be leading this free session. To sign up through Meetup, go to http://www.meetup.com/irving-art-association/events/232086829/. Joining Meetup.com is free also, plus you can receive notices about our free sessions & events. Or email Sharon at irvingartassociation@gmail.com to reserve your spot.

Let’s create an abstract tree painting using paint drips and splats with negative painting to refine it. Great drawing skills are not required.

Supplies: acrylic paint, brushes, canvas or paper, tabletop easel, water container, tape, paper towels, plastic tablecloth, apron etc. Pipettes, eyedroppers or spoons can be useful for dripping. If you want to use watercolor, bring white & black gouache also. (You can also bring a failed painting to transform.)

Preview the process by viewing the Bob Burridge videos and enjoy! (You can also sign up for his free Bob Blasts videos.) Of course, we will be working in smaller scale.
