This friendly group is for any kind souls interested in creating visual art journals. All skill levels are welcome--you do not have to be an artist or have any former art training to join. I started this group so that we can come together to learn how to use a variety of art materials (tinker...), exchange ideas (inspire...), share and experiment with techniques (make "mistakes" frequently...) and grow in creativity together (fun light-hearted fellowship...), and to also take some time out to enjoy relaxing and being self-expressed with kindred folk (right brainers unite...). I'm looking forward to exploring possibilities with all who would like to join me. We will meet second Sunday of the month from 2-4:00 at a cafe for beverage/good eats/art and also at a variety of places such as local botanical gardens and arboretums for inspiration while soaking up the sun and fresh air when the weather is nice (I'm thinking picnic baskets filled with paints...). $5 fee per meeting. Please bring an unruled journal, fine tip black permanent marker, simple watercolor set, nice paintbrush, and any basic drawing materials.

Let's play in the garden and learn about the wonderful ways of using lines most artist use to create character and have a silly time doing it. I kid you not, you will find yourself laughing so hard you may bust a gut! Be sure to bring your journal, watercolors, water cup, paper towel, paint brush, fine tip permanent marker and a bandana or scarf. You may want to bring a snack and beverage as there is no concession available. There are restrooms and water fountains. Please bring sunscreen and bug spray and dress comfortably. The solarium/sun room is covered so we won't have to worry about a rainy day. Admission for Chanticleer is $10 for adults; PHS members $8; Radnor Library Cardholders $5.00. The garden is open until 5:00. So we will have time after this event to extend our visit at the garden :)
