Thousand Islands Fine Arts Association _ Workshop

I have been asked to conduct a presentation and workshop for the Thousand Islands Arts Association. It will be fun and I am quite looking forward to getting back to some art ... from the meteorology of Sandy and other storms... It has been opened to non TIFAA members. Please contact the President Belia Brandow through the above link or at  
By the way the weather next Thursday looks spectacular under a northeast to southwest ridge of high pressure. Winds will be light westerly and skies should be mainly sunny. The temperatures will be up to plus 7 Celsius but the sun will make it feel warmer...

The details follow:
Hello TIFAA members. We have opened up the workshop to non TIFAA members for a cost of $15.00. There is no charge for members . Please let me know ASAP if you are bringing a guest. You do not need to bring painting supplies as the day will be presentations, demonstrations and discussions. You can however print a landscape painting if you wish ( preferably a plein air ) and Phil will attempt to apply his “CSI” knowledge . Hopefully we will have time for 2-3 paintings. This will be fun and a great learning experience .
