The program for January was "What's in Your Art Box?" hosted by Jean Mazur. Members were invited to share their favorite art supplies and any other art related things. It was really to see what everyone brought.
Jean brought a backpack filled with supplies. Soft Backpacks tend to fall over on a flat surface. She came up with an idea of using a plastic shoe box in the bottom to keep the backpack upright. This makes it easier to find things without rummaging around. Her 30L backpack is from Walmart from the Outdoor brand. It's several years old and has traveled to Italy, Mexico, French Polynesia and Fiji!
Joy Staelens is the queen of recycling! She brought a plastic milk carton filled with all sorts of things she recycles for creating art along with her favorite Martha Stewart metallic paints, which were discounted. If you have some let her know! Her mediums of choice are glitter and Mod Podge!
