April 9th Member Meeting Wrap-up

We had an informative and fun Member Meeting at the Concord Library this week. Scott Stevenson of Daniel Smith Inc. gave a presentation on the history and logistics of the revered watercolor (and oil-paint) manufacturer, still making paint in the USA. We learned the geology and science of making Prima Tek paint from minerals; the surprising origin of Quinacridone colors (thanks to the auto industry); and the properties of luminescent watercolors and how they refract light.

Then we created some beautifully vibrant, at times granulated and sparkling palettes with Daniel Smith samples and it was like a room full of magic. We may have some watercolor converts after this meeting.

Congratulations to Yumiko Nishizawa, Diane Oles, and Julie Limberg--the winners of a gorgeous mini-art show. We also had a raffle of watercolor supplies. Thank you to members who stepped up to volunteer for CAA jobs. We are always looking for volunteers to fulfill many roles at CAA. Send us an email if you'd like to find out more about volunteering.

Our next meeting will be at the Concord Library on Tuesday, May 14, 12:30 - 3pm. This will be a Maker Meeting. Bring your art supplies and make some art while visiting with CAA friends. You can check the CAA Calendar for upcoming events, art receptions and future meetings.
