August Meeting in Memphis

This month the Memphis CPSA group met and had a group critique session and discussed the CPSA convention.  During the convention there are a lot of door prizes and raffles for the convention attendees.  Well they had so many contributions this year that they gave me 2 extra bags of goodies to take back to the group to use.  So we used some the items this month for door prizes.  Everyone that attended the meeting was able to pick out 2 door prizes! In the first photo, you can see some of the members looking through the items and trying to decide what they wanted to pick out.
After we were updated on the upcoming changes with CPSA and discussed the convention, the group had a critique session for the members who brought some of their current works in progress.

Our September meeting will be held the first Saturday at the usual meeting place, St. Francis of Assisi on Germantown Rd.  We will be finalizing our plans for the 2 art shows that we will have in October and December.  More door prizes will be given away!  Hope to see everyone there and bring what you are working on if you want a critique or just to show what you are working on.

June Critique Session

Our June meeting was held June 4th, 2011.  We had our usual business meeting, where we discussed our upcoming art shows at the end of this year.  So be sure and get busy working on some new artwork for the art shows!  Also, I just wanted to share a couple of photos of a member critique from the meeting.  After our wonderful portrait workshop in April, with Toni James, member Gus Staub started his own portrait of one of his grandchildren.  Shown are Gus, Susan and Janice giving  Gus some good feedback on his portrait in progress.

We do not have a meeting in July because of the July 4th holiday.  Have a good summer and spend those hot afternoons and evenings drawing some new work for our show!

See you all in August!

Toni James Workshop in Memphis!

This past weekend, our CPSA chapter held a workshop with Toni James.  Toni is a wonderful portrait artist and agreed to come to Memphis to teach us her portrait techniques.   It was a great experience and I believe that everyone came away happy from this workshop.  So a big thank you to Toni for coming to Memphis! 
Here are some photos from the workshop.  If you missed it, you should really try to make it to one of Toni's workshops if you want to learn alot about portraits and working on Uart paper.
