Times a Wastin'

I just want to remind everyone that under-enrolled classes are closed almost a week before classes start so if you want to sign up for classes please do so ASAP.

If you are a non-resident you can start to register tomorrow - Sept 1st - so don't forget.

If you are planning on taking classes, I will post the new projects for this semester in a couple weeks, however, what I have planned will take some things I usually don't require so if you are out and about and happen to find yourself in an art store :-) here is what you need to look for:

Watercolor class, you will need to have some masking fluid. Try to find the kind without color in it, however, if all they have has color find one with either blue or yellow color, it won't cause you and many problems as the orange which I found can stain the paper defeating the purpose of using mask.

Acrylic class, you will need to get either black gesso (prefered) or black paint but the regular paint isn't as opaque so it doesn't cover as well, which means you will use more of the more expensive paint. If you don't want to use black, any dark color will work, gesso now comes in many colors but for this to work, you will need a dark color like blue, green or red. Walser's should have it if Micheal's doesn't and Aaron Brother's may also carry it. Let me know if you are having trouble finding it.

Again, gather your friends and get everyone signed up for classes! This is a great program we need to support it to keep it going. See ya all soon - I hope ;-)
