Liz Hill Abstract Landscape workshop

Wal member Liz Hill will teach a workshop in watermedia collage.  1 DAY, SAT., March 13

TIME: 9:00-4:00 P.M.

COST: $70

Location: Christ Church, League Line Rd., Conroe After Liz did an abstract landscape demo at CAL's spring show, requests have been made for her to do a workshop so we are pleased to offer one. It was so much fun watching her put her creation together with such apparent abandonment yet with obvious knowledge. She can show us how to have that same fun and creativity. Liz will also bring additional collage papers for use, most of which she has used in her own paintings. This one-day w/s will fill up fast.

Lone Star Art Guild yearbook contest

The deadline for WAL members to submit entries for the Lone Star Art Guild Yearbook (directory) competition is March 25. Applicants are asked to bring their entries (for front and back covers) to the March 25 WAL general meeting, where members will vote on best designs. The winning designs will then be submitted to the LSAG for their April 1 deadline.

Each year the Lone Star Art Guild invites each member league to submit a total of two entries (a front and back cover entry, two front cover entries or two back cover entries) for the competition. Each entry should be black and white and "copy ready". Entry dimensions must be 8" (height) by 5" (width). For front cover entries, try to have "Lone Star Art Guild" and "2010 -2011" somewhere in the design. The design must be an artwork drawn by the artist and not “computer aided,” however, the lettering may be done using a computer. Two Xerox copies should accompany the artwork to demonstrate how “camera ready” the artwork is. If the artist wishes the original artwork returned by LSAG, they must include a stamped self-addressed envelope. Note: try not to include all the member league names on the cover as this may change from year to year.

The winner of the yearbook front cover and the winner of the yearbook back cover will each receive a $50 cash award at the May 14-15 LSAG convention.
