April Art Challenge:

Repurposing Art

The challenge is to find a piece of thrift store type art and embellish the original piece with additional unexpected items or colors.  Lynell has provided us with an AI via Midjourney example of what you might do.  The example shows a classic tall ship on the ocean (the original work) with the addition of rubber duckies as embellishments to the original piece.

We look forward to how you are inspired by a piece of art to transform it with your own creativity.

All members and guests are welcome.

Next Organizational Meeting

for Studio Tour

April 23 at Noon

The next meeting for the PAA Artists Studio Tour will be at the conference room at Raley's in Placerville at 166 Placerville Drive at Noon on April 23, 2024. 

We will also offer Zoom for this meeting.  Details below.  If you plan to participate in this year's tour, we encourage you to attend the organizational meetings to learn more about the tour and to see how you can help promote the tour.  This year, we need a graphic artist to assist with the brochure.  We have used Print Shop in the past to put together the brochure.  If you use Print Shop that will make it easier, but if you have other preferred software, that works for us.


For questions about the tour contact the organizers: Myra Cooper Holmes, Wendy Scarlett, and Matt Harline.
