Time to Celebrate! Time for the Holly and the Ivy!
All BAGSC members are cordially invited to our annual Holiday Meeting online, Saturday, December 9 at 3:00 pm Pacific Time. (Please note: our usual meeting time has been changed to accommodate the time difference between Japan and Southern California.)
After a brief business meeting and announcement of our election results, we are very excited to present our holiday gift to our membership—a special workshop by our own Akiko Enokido. The holidays are the time to paint the glossy leaves of camellias, ivy and holly and Akiko will share her techniques and demonstrate the methods she uses to paint her renowned shiny leaves.
