10:00 am to 12:00
Family Life Center

Guess what the subject of our program will be this month?
PENCILS! All about pencils. Have you tried something different
other than the standard Prismacolors? Bring them in and let the
others try them too. Does anyone use the big “crayon” sticks?
There are many new types of “pencils” and this will be your chance
to try out some of them to see if they are for you!
Bring any art that you have done with these different kinds of
pencils so we can see what kind of effect you can get with them.
