President's Message
May 2017
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…


President's Message
April 2017

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.

Thought for the day: 
Take time to enjoy your surroundings. 
Capture the moment…


As Pine Shores Art progresses towards the second half of the year, I am declaring June as Volunteer month.

I want to thank our volunteers for donating their time and efforts and for being part of the PSAA family. You volunteers are the wheel hub of the association that makes the operation of PSAA run smoothly. I hope you continue to volunteer whenever you can and in whatever capacity you can offer.

Thought for the month: Leave not a canvas blank. Color your world with happy thoughts and deeds.
