OKC NEWS:  

Our "sculpt-in with instruction" (a 1-day workshop) was held December 1 at the Contemporary Arts Center. Everyone worked on a portrait of our great model, Adrian Rosen. According to those in attendance, everyone had a great time and learned some new things. Jim Franklin provided instruction and answered questions. A variety of clays were used by the participants. We will be having more of these 1-day workshops. Our next one will be in early 2019. It will most likely be a full figure; keep checking your email and newsletter!

TULSA NEWS:

Larry Waid, Dian Church and Pat Flanagan participated in the October 20 Plein Air sculpting and painting event. They were permitted to build the armature ahead; they worked at Ziegler's that Friday, then Saturday at 7 am they moved to Post Oak Lodge in the Osage Hills and set up under the trees to work. They had to finish and turn in their entries by 3 pm that day in order to be entered for the judging on Sunday. The sculptures were judged separately from the paintings; Larry was given 1st place, Dian 2nd, and Pat 3rd. Interested bystanders included two women who now join them on Wednesdays, and they received an invitation to participate in the Broken Arrow Rose Festival in May 2019!

Kristen Abramson’s 2nd bird workshop was held November 9-13, and she’s scheduled a 3rd on San Juan Island December 11-13! Eight participated in the 2nd workshop; there had been 10 in the first one held in September. From Kristen: "I am so impressed with everyone who attended. One of the students has a buyer for her bird and a couple others have their birds at the foundry." Note: more than one participant has commented on how organized Kristen is!
