President, Margaret Lindsey, presided over our first meeting held at the Automatic Printing Co. in Torrance, CA. We all had a chance to introduce our selves and art work to each other and then had a lively discussion about the goals of the group. One of our main concentrations will be to provide art demonstrations at meetings, to have several workshops with teachers of pastel during the year, and to have one show of our pastel work. There were 17 potential members in attendance. If any of you want to get involved in doing pastel painting, contact Margaret by email.
Our next meeting will be held Saturday, September 19 at Graphaids, 7280 Manchester Blvd., Westchester, 90045. The demonstrator will be Joe Mancuso who is a local pastel teacher. If you plan to attend, please let Sue Kuuskmae know.
