Jenn Raby has generously offered to provide a series of three online demos.
They will be held on Tuesday afternoons, 2:00 p.m. to 3: 00 p.m. Jan 26, Feb. 2, and 9th. This will be through Zoom and it is important that you have the latest Zoom Cloud Meetings App downloaded ahead of time. Please RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and the link will be sent to you ahead of the first meeting. Each meeting will have a separate Zoom link. The demo includes three projects which are continued from one week to the next; however, if you can only attend one or two sessions that is fine; however, you may miss essential aspects of the demo.
JENN RABY ARTIST STATEMENT:
Every artwork I make is a journey that I take with my heart, body and my sense of wonder. With each of these journeys I experience firsthand the joy of making art and the excitement of watching it develop before my eyes. With art I enter into a magical world in which time seems to float on fluffy clouds and all things are possible. What a journey! Come join me I love to share.

Join us for a virtual demo given by Danielle Beaulieu on how she paints rust in watercolour. Practice and then complete a small painting of a rusted shackle. You can choose to relax with a coffee or glass of wine and observe how the different layers are applied or let yourself be guided by Danielle and paint your own rusted object.
We will have time for interaction and questions following the demo.
You will need to have the Zoom Cloud meetings App downloaded. Just click on the link in the email sent to you and be part of this experience.
Please send RSVP to email@example.com, so she can send you the zoom link.
