Meetings for 2021 continue to be virtual using Zoom. Tips for Zoom can be found here.
The May 4th Guild meeting will start at the regular time of 1:00 pm, our speaker will be Olga Buraya-Kefelian and we still have openings for her workshops. We may need to cancel one or more workshops if we don’t get enough enrollment. Read about Olga and check out her workshops here. All workshops can be taken independently of each other. All the skills needed to complete the project(s) illustrated or linked to will be covered in each class. So choose a final project you’d like to do and enroll in that class, or take them all to build a variety of skills and enhance your approach to creativity!
