MAY 19TH GENERAL MEETING
Senior Center in Placerville, 1:30-3:30 PM
We are fortunate to have Howard Rees for our program at the May meeting. Howard will be demonstrating oils although he is equally comfortable with watercolor. He has been developing his career as a full-time artist since 1975 and enjoys depicting Americana, local Gold Country scenes, intimate European street studies and magnificent vistas. Be sure you don’t miss this one!
