MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 18, 2016.

The October Demonstrator will be Maribeth Jagger, demonstrating Alcohol Ink. Meeting starts at 6:30.

Maribeth Jagger has painted most of her adult life having received her degree in art from Northwest Florida State University. She currently teaches alcohol ink classes at The McKinney Art Studio in McKinney, Texas and at the Artist Showplace in Dallas.

In addition to teaching, she gives workshops and demonstrations to various art clubs and organizations and has taught art to many youth groups. She headed the Art in a Suitcase school program for the Chrysler Art Museum in Virginia Beach, VA and at the Colorado Springs Art Museum.

Maribeth primarily works with alcohol inks as she feels they vibrate with a purity of color, fluidity and energy that’s hard to replicate with other mediums. "I love the vibrancy and spontaneity of alcohol inks.

A new solo art exhibit featuring Zentangle™ Inspired Art by Linda Clary has been installed at the Heights Recreation Center at 411 W Arapaho Rd, Richardson, TX 75080. The Zentangle™ Method is a relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing easy-to-learn structured patterns.

2015-Young People's Show


RCAS hosted the Young People's Scholarship Art Show featuring the artwork of Richardson Independent School District art students in grades 9 - 12. The awards were presented to the students on Monday night at the Richardson Library. Many thanks to Pete Quaid for Chairing this show and to Maureen Brouillette for judging it. And thanks to the teachers and students of RISD for their hard work and outstanding art. Claudia Caudill was kind enough to take these pictures at the awards reception, so a round of applause is in order for her work as well. Last, but not least, a heartfelt thank you to all of the volunteers without whom our shows could not exist.
