**Please note: DUE TO COVID-19 OUR MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED AT THIS TIME.
WE ARE PLANNING ZOOM PROGRAMS ON THE
2ND WED OF THE MONTH.
SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION.
Come and Join Us at a Lemont Artists Guild ZOOM Meeting!
WED. NOV. 11, 2020-7:00-8:30 PM
WATERCOLOR POSTCARD Q&A WITH LYNNE BAUR, DRAGONFLY SPIRIT STUDIO
CLICK THE BELOW LINK TO REGISTER:
The Homer Township Public Library and the Lemont Artists Guild present artist Lynne Baur (Dragonfly Spirit Studio). Lynne will talk about the creation of her YouTube “Postcard Paint-Along” videos and give us a look into her life as an artist living on the Oregon coast and (until Covid-19) traveling around the country working and living in a camper van. She will reserve time in her presentation to take your questions about the postcard videos and life as an artist on the Oregon coast and on the road.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT A "PAINT-ALONG", BUT WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO TRY OUT ONE OF HER VIDEOS BEFOREHAND. NOT A REQUIREMENT THOUGH, YOU CAN JUST WATCH THE PROGRAM AND LEARN ABOUT LYNNE AND HER LIFE AS AN ARTIST AND ABOUT HER VIDEOS.
Lynne “believes each of us has the soul of an artist. The creative spirit emerges in different ways at different times in our lives, and some of us are lucky enough to be called upon to express that spirit in visual art.”
Before the Zoom Meeting:
We SUGGEST that you might want to watch—or even try!—one of her postcard videos before the presentation (not a requirement, you can also just watch the program). Lynne will answer questions about the postcard projects you’ve tried (or plan to try) as time permits. This Zoom presentation will be interactive. You may ask a question at any time, but we ask you to mute your microphone the rest of the time. You can turn off your video if you do not want to be seen at all.
Note: If you want to show Lynne something during the presentation that you have a question about, it works much better if you snap a quick photo and email it to Lynne before asking your question. Lynne will explain more about this (and give the email address to use), but we wanted to let you know you might want your phone or camera handy. (You can also hold your picture up to your webcam if that is your only option, but it’s often difficult to see much detail that way.)
Here are some suggested postcard videos to try (not a requirement, you can also just watch the program):

Suggested Basic List of Materials (NOT supplied) IF YOU DECIDE TO create a postcard (but each video is unique, so if you are creating a postcard ahead of time, double-check the video first to see if you need anything else):
This event is open to the public, so please sign up if you want to go to it, that is the only way you can attend through registering through the
Homer Library website and you want to do it before the slots are gone. You do not have to be a library member or LAG member to attend.
This program will take place online on Zoom.
