Upcoming & Ongoing Events


  • Monthly Meeting, Sunday, February 11, 2 pm: Next Meeting of The Painters Group: Painting in a Series by Tracy Paz, at SLO United Methodist Church, Wesley Bldg. Tracy Paz will talk about the advantages and the mindset of working in series, and present historical and personal examples of paintings that illustrate both long range and shorter series. We’ll examine ideas on setting useful parameters for your own series, applying them to your own long term vision as well as to specific skill acquisition. Questions?
