Check out the CAAS Noticeboard for the latest posting. Member, Carol Adams is running a colour workshop at the Over 50’s Club and you might like to participate.
Also, keep your evening, Friday 25 May free to attend the Opening of the Art Shed at Crispe Street. It’s a big event for Art in Alice Springs.
Recently I have been reminded that our relatively ‘new’ blog can still be a confusing minefield for people. At the risk of boring you all silly, I thought I would explain again how the blog works and how you can use it. First, and foremost, it is designed with our members in mind and it is for that reason we migrated from our previous website format which included a blog, to primarily a blog format which includes website ‘pages’. The blog was previously the most talked about, and popular, part of the website, but there was no provision for interaction. The new blog format has the capacity for you to subscribe, but even if you are not a subscriber, you can leave a comment on a particular posting. We felt the opportunity for members to interact was worth making the changes.
To subscribe to the blog you will need to select the ‘follow blog by email’ button on the right hand side of the Home page, and enter your email address. Continue reading
Things at the Art Shed are progressing weekly, thanks to perseverance and hard work. This week Steve Anderson and Ron Talbot hung the ‘trays’ that will hold the gallery lights for the exhibition area of the Shed. Getting gallery lights will be a big achievement as it means CAAS can finally have its own exhibitions again. We are planning a social evening next Friday 2 March to watch an art DVD on our lovely flat screen TV, so bring a plate or grab something at the supermarket after work and come along at 5.30 for a casual evening and to admire our shiny new shed! We will be in touch with a reminder about this before next Friday.
If you’ve been thinking about bringing your ‘inner artist’ out to play, have a think about joining one of the CAAS activities at the Art Shed. Continue reading
Plans are under way for the Opening Celebration of the Art Shed at Crispe Street. We would love to have your input as a participant or just some ideas of things you would like to see happening. Ideas we are currently discussing are workshops, an exhibition, food, demonstrations, etc. Please leave a comment on this blog, or email myself (Ardys) or the secretary, Mark secretaryCAAS@iinet.net.au
We are very happy for involvement from you at any level. If you would like to be part of the planning of the event, let us know!
Just a reminder that member, Carol Adams, presents a Beginners’ Watercolour Workshop starts 11 February at the Art Shed. There are still a few spaces left, so get details of this workshop and others as they are put into place on our CAAS Noticeboard page (or click on the link above).
