GENERAL MEETING INFORMATION: Meetings are on the second Saturday of odd numbered months, from 11 am – 2 pm. Most meetings are held at the Bellevue Arts Museum, 510 Bellevue Way NE, Bellevue, WA 98004. Bring your lunch. Also bring any artwork you are working on or have recently completed. For all meetings at BAM, if you are not a museum member, you may attend the meetings without paying the museum daily entry fee if you go directly to and from the meeting room. If you wish to see any of the exhibits on the day of the meeting, you need to pay a daily entrance fee. You may choose to become a museum member for the artist rate of $40 a year. This museum has no permanent exhibits, so it is likely there will be a different exhibit on display for most of our 6 yearly meetings. BAM membership includes openings and special events. On their community page, artist members can provide a link to their personal artist website.
2020 MEETINGS & EVENTS
March 14, 2020: Drawing from a still life featuring our favorite SHOES. Bring a shoe or two to add to the setup - the weirder or more unique the better. Got a cowboy boot or spiky high heel? Pam Belcher will provide instruction and helpful hints on how to tackle drawing something like this. The focus is not to create a masterpiece, but to improve and practice our drawing skills. It's unbelievably fun to draw from life. One can feel the brain synapses firing...
