Give us your ideas on what we should include on the WPAG calendar for the next 12 months. As the whole world is experiencing a life changing event, now more than ever, we need to think about how we can stay engaged in art and possibly its an opportunity to think about how we can share our love of art in new ways.
The planning meeting has traditionally covered dates and the names of our monthly shows, as well as interesting potential workshops and names of visiting artists to provide classes. While these are important, we want to expand our growth as artists and members of the community by adding some more creative offerings as well.
Please fill out the form with your suggestions. You may decide to make anonymous recommendations as all fields are optional. The goal is to see how creative you can get with suggestions for the upcoming year!
Each member is equal and your ideas are important to share with the membership so the guild can grow and meet the needs of our exceptional art group.
