Show Preparation
Terry In House Presentation
It's a CCPS Members Paint Evening!  In order to share some of the vast artistic knowledge we have right within our group, members are invited to bring their own materials, set up, and paint together, each demonstrating their own unique style of creating art.  Those interested in painting may all do so around the room, and those not interested in painting (as well as those painting) are invited to sit or walk around and observe the work being done, asking questions and learning from each other.  Please do consider painting!  It will be a low-stress evening of visiting, enjoying art and its process.
