Paint out, this Thursday, July 5 beginning 9am, Portland Women's Forum Scenic Overlook (and additional news)

Paint out, THURSDAY, JULY 5 9am,  Host Geri Graley
Location: Portland Women’s Forum Scenic Viewpoint (Don't let the name of the place confuse you, men are invited too)!
Bring your plein air gear, a chair and your lunch. The weather forecast indicates that it will be sunny, but always best to bring clothing layers. We'll paint/draw until noon and then reconvene for lunch. During lunch we line up the morning paintings/drawings for discussion (All levels are welcome, and all media: watercolorists, sketchers, dry media, oil, etcetera)--after lunch stay on if you want, it is an all day thing (though some have an evening reception, see information below). There are no bathrooms at the Portland Women's Forum viewpoint,  you just have to be willing to travel to the grocery or Vista House if you need one.

Art Discussion Meetings begin Thursday, July 12. We are going to resume* regular Thursday Morning art discussion Meetings in Multnomah Village. Our new location, Prosperity Pie, is just a couple of doors down from the former O'Connors restaurant (7814 SW Capitol Hwy). We will be meeting in their classroom in the back. As was the case before, some of us will come earlier (at 8) for a "leisurely" bite. The regular meeting will begin at 9. Please do your level best to get there in advance of 9, so that you get a coffee and/or a bite to support our new hosts and to not miss anything.  (Absolutely no outside drinks or food are permitted). You'll get *further updates about a few changes. Though the meetings are planned for every Thursday there will be a couple of exceptions. Please be sure to read your email notices.
