Spring is always a wonderful time to create artwork. As clouds give way to the varied blues of the skies, and as an assortment of nature’s hues brings the landscape to life, you become inspired to capture those colors by creating beauty on paper and canvas.
Want to reconnect with nature? Pack up those drawing pencils, pads, paints and canvas and join us for plein air sessions. There is no charge for these sessions. Call PSAA if interested in joining the group.
During the month of March, Pine Shores Art Association is presenting a Memorial Show for Connie Purves as Artist of the Month. The reception for this show will be Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 2pm until 4pm.
Don’t forget to show your talents as artists in the Student Show. See the newsletter for further information.
March 27th is the first art lecture of 2017 at the Stafford Library in Manahawkin at 7pm. This lecture will be on “The Art of Photography”.
I hope to see you at our next membership meeting, Monday, March 6th at 7pm. The demo following the meeting is an oil demo by Jason Ward.
Thought for the day:
Take 15 minutes out of your busy day and be creative.
Hopefully, the cold winter temperatures and snow are behind us. We can now look forward to warmer days and colorful blooms that will guide us into the second quarter of the new year.
In a belief that better weather will bring us days of inspiration - while putting our pencils and brushes to work in a productive season of creating art - we can at last show the many expressions that spring has to offer.
In the month of April, Pine Shores Art offers many classes in watercolor and gouache. I hope you get a chance to get outdoors and enjoy our wonderful, local landscape. Take you camera and drawing pad and use those photos and sketches as references in rendering your talents as artists in upcoming classes and shows.
Don’t miss our April 3rd demo by Bob Heyer in Watercolor of Boats and Bay. Bob is a brilliant watercolorist and his class will follow in May. Check our newsletter and this website (click here and scroll down) for exact dates and times.
Thought of the day:
Take time to enjoy your surroundings, capture the moment…

The month of May promises to be a sensational month at PSAA, starting with the upcoming monthly meeting on May 1st. I am hoping to see many new faces of members who have been absent for the winter. Don’t forget your artistic name tag!
Our gallery walls are now adorned with the Spring Show entries. The Show's reception will be held on Sunday, May 7th, 1pm to 4pm. Hope to see you there.
May will also showcase a variety of classes to consider at Pine Shores Art... Watercolor, Acrylic, or Colored Pencil. I hope that you take advantage of our low fees for classes taught by our experienced and highly-qualified instructors.
