Remember! February Member Meeting is at the Pleasant Hill Library at 1:30!

 Your Board of Directors are in the process of updating the style and content of our newsletter, blog, and social media. At the same time, we are realigning responsibilities of our board members to even out the workload. The Board needs help from a member with writing and editing skills. Please contact us at if you can volunteer three or four hours per month to edit the newsletter.

February Program
Our Program Chair, Patti St. Denis, has organized a presentation by artist and Strathmore representative, Tom Colcord. Tom will present The Essentials of Paper, a topic which covers both drawing and watercolor paper. Members will participate in hand-on exercises, using a selection of papers and drawing materials. The goal is to help members select the right paper for future projects. Attendees will receive samples of papers and literature about Strathmore papers as well as drawing materials.

Tom is an accomplished artist and teacher. Visit his website:

Please renew your membership soon! We will be distributing new badge card stock and asking you to create artwork for your CAA 2020 Member badge. If you took your 2019 badge home, please bring it to the meeting so we can reuse the badge holder!

One of the benefits to membership is exhibits sponsored by CAA.  See Call for Artists for specifics about the Colors of Spring in May.
