New Items – February 16, 2015

The new TIPS tab is now available. It is composed of 3 sections i.e. CMW Newsletter tips, Other Artist tips and Websites. See that tab for LOTS of information. I sincerely hope you enjoy it.  Please feel free to contact me with potential additions, corrections, or obsolete sites.  On the Tips site, see Dan Mondloch’s information in the form of a You Tube video and a written instructional about his Reverse Watermedia Painting technique. Both are available in the Tips tab. 

This is the first time for Northstar Watermedia Society to host Northstar National Watermedia Exhibition to be held  September 12-October 18, 2015 at  Hopkins Center for the Arts.   See the Exhibit tab for more specific information about registration, timing and the show.

See the Meetings tab for new art related to the President’s Challenge titled “Food for Thought”.

Dan Mondloch received 2nd place in the Arts in Harmony Show at Elk River.  See the Congrats tab for more on that.

Time Change for CMW Meetings

To All CMW Members:  Due to the need to close the Paramount by 9 PM and in order for the CMW meeting to be conducted in full, the meeting time will begin earlier and generally be conducted as follows:

* 6:00 PM – Arrival, sign-in and networking
* 6:20 PM – Meeting call to order
* 6:35 PM – Demo (or other scheduled activity)
* 8:40 PM – Demo concludes – meeting adjourns

This begins with the February, 2015 meeting and continues from this point on.

Thank you,
CMW
Board of Directors
