Spring Cleaning at PSAA
Thank you all so much for your help sprucing up OUR place on April 17th. You were wonderful to work with and in three and a half hours we had it sparkling.  
We tidied, brushed, vacuumed, and scrubbed, the windows, baseboards, air conditioners, kitchen, bathrooms, office, coat room, store room, etc. Then had lunch!

Next Art Chat meets on May 4th. Our usual critiques are great but if you need help deciding your entries to the upcoming events, bring your stuff along and see what your peers think. We can help you decide which of your works we love best. 

At our last Chat, Laura Bethmann brought some of her beautiful paintings and explained some of her techniques and the reasons behind her subject matter.

Art Chats will be held on the first and third Thursday mornings of every month at 10:15 at the Seaport Shanty in Tuckerton Seaport, but check the "Pine Shores Art" page on Facebook for any last minute changes or cancellations.
