Hey all – so sorry about the OOPS post last night!
We had some technical difficulties and posted an archived blog by accident… we artists and technology don’t always mesh so well!
Welcome to this week’s
Want to participate in our next Virtual Gallery?
Send us images of artwork created since March 19th 2020, so that we can include them in our blog! It helps inspire us and others to keep creating and try new things! We want to see what you are creating
* When you send images, PLEASE don’t reply to this e-mail. It is a “DoNotReply” e-mail, and images just won’t attach. Don’t know why, but they don’t.
PLEASE E-mail your images and stories to ArtCentralSLO@yahoo.com.
CALL FOR ARTISTS!
Show off your creations in our annual “Little Treasures” holiday exhibit this December and January!
This exhibit is unique in that art must sell for $100 or less, for the holiday season. The best gift is a one-of-a-kind piece of art created by one of our local fine artists! Show runs December 3rd thru the end of January.

* * * * CALL FOR INSTRUCTORS * * * *
We have been getting tons of requests for classes lately… Of course, due to Covid restrictions, we can’t host our usual art classes. We want to connect instructors and students!
If you’re an Art Instructor please email us at email@example.com – Please include your full name, what you can teach and the age groups you’re willing to teach, your preference of zoom or private home classes, a short bio, some images of your work, contact info for students and/or a website link. We are especially interested in teachers for younger artists, in the range of 5-15 years old. But whether you are able to teach young or more mature, please let us know! There are many folks out there looking for fun online classes and learning experiences!
We can overcome and adapt to this obstacle together and continue to enrich our art community!

|New Demo Video: How To Do A Pour|
|Pouring encaustic medium can allow you to quickly create a smooth even surface for your work. Our newest demo video illustrates two ways to do a pour – one that will create a thicker surface on your panel and a pour-over that works wonderfully with flat panels. You can watch it on R&F’s YouTube channel. Subscribe so you don’t miss any of our upcoming demos. To read our blog post with step-by-step instructions and a helpful tip, visit R&F’s blog Unique Color. |
