January Meeting

Linda O’Neill did an amazing two part program in January.

During the first half of the program she took us through the steps she used to produce her Bird and Words poster that she did for Carol DuBosch’s year long class.

The second part of the program was Akin, an informal calligraphic hand.  We all had fun practicing it.  It has many possible applications!

December Meeting

Our December 9th meeting was a lot of fun.  We began with an “Immersion in Italics” led by Genaveve Starr.  We then participated in a holiday potluck. The food was delicious!  The  highlight was letter cookie decorating.
