WVAS Recent Past and Coming Events!

It's been awhile since this blog has been updated, but that doesn't mean that the Wabash Valley Artists Society has been inactive. 

We just hosted a watercolor workshop, Saturday, March 30 given by Terry Armstrong. Fifteen enthusiastic artists spent the day learning to paint a water landscape.  It was a great day. 

Tuesday, April 16 The WVAS will be making a field trip to Twin Rocker Handmade Paper in Brookston Indiana.  Founder, Kathryn Clark, will give us a tour of the paper making facility and tell us how their wonderful paper is made.  There will be opportunity to shop for some of the beautiful handmade paper while we are there.  Details to come!
