Meetings are informative and educational with hands on painting.



 Our meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month at the
Trenton United Church 85 Dundas St E, Trenton, ON
 K8V 1M2

Due to Winter driving Conditions

Please note that our January February and March meetings will be held in the afternoon at 2:00 pm
Jan Swenson will be teaching the after meeting project her preparation instructions are below

I am teaching the hot glue gun art piece I showed you in November. (Kitty approved) We will do a "Tree of Life" on a 1 inch thick, 8x10 wood panel. You can get them for $2.00 at the Dollarama or use any surface you prefer, smaller or larger is fine too. Don't prep the piece. The glue sticks to the surface good and then we will add gesso to assure adhesion afterwards. We will be drying this three times with paint stuck in all the cracks so several hair dryers would be helpful.

I will provide paint; I have a spare glue gun, spare glue sticks and a spare surface

List of Materials:
Tracing paper and stylist
Glue Gun
3 or 4 glue sticks
Extension cords! ( I'll bring special tape to avoid tripping)
Good sized bristol brush that can take a beating while pouncing colour into the cracks
1 inch or less flat brush for painting edges.

I'm looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year!
