Art Club 30 Day Challenge - SAA

The SAA are putting together an article for Paint about the 'Art Club Thirty Day Challenge' - which was launched in the September issue (page 33) - and they are looking for Art Clubs to feature in their magazine. They have contacted York Art Society to see if we would like to take part. 

They would also like to do follow-up articles about this challenge in future issues, focussing on clubs which have read about it and decided to take it up. 

If you think you would like to participate in this, please can you let Linda Sturgeon know at the next artist demonstration meeting on 21 October.  

Thank you
