Thursday:) The Art Club of McKinney

9 Nov

“When people tell me that they can’t even draw a stickman, I tell them that the secret isn’t being born a great artist, the secret is having a great art teacher.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis

This morning was our November meeting of the Art Club of McKinney. The early agenda and discussion was busy reporting minutes, upcoming events, the artist of the month contest, a raffle and a wonderful break for refreshments before the artist demonstration.

Our guest artist today was Magda Dia, who is also a club member, a fine potter, lives in and has a teaching studio in the historic district, and is also a sweet friend.

Magda demonstrated all the steps to throwing small clay bowls on the wheel, along with tips and tricks for creative throwing. (A little throwing of clay splatters did occur on the front row spectators)

Volunteer, Gena Roberson, tried her hand at making a bowl. She did a great job.

We had a very fun and informative meeting and demonstration today.
