Spring Update

We have had a great start to this year.

WAA Meetings

First, we had a fantastic in person meeting at the Westfield Memorial Library in February. We discussed upcoming member shows and several members shared recent art works that they created.  Genevieve (Eve) Leonard gave a wonderful presentation about fine art animation. You can see more about Eve and her art at www.genevieveleonard.com.

Look out for an email about our upcoming meeting in April!

Our Plein Air event is coming up in May (there will be a separate post about that shortly).
