THANKS TO ALL
David Rankin returned last month with his presentation on “Facebook for Artists”. He gave us a hands-on look at how he uses Facebook to promote his work and how we can as well. Facebook is one of the world's largest gathering spots for artists, and, indeed, David has many friends from all over the planet that follow his work. We appreciate David sharing his Facebook knowledge with us. Our members were very attentive to what he had to say, as we obviously lost total track of all time! Some of our members may not be that computer savvy, but many more of us learned a lot. We thank him for sharing his insights and time with us. Our club’s Facebook site will definitely benefit from this information. FYI....Euclid Art Association has had its own Facebook page for the last few years and it is open to all members to post anything they think might be of interest to members regarding their artistic endeavors.
Thanks also to our April hostesses, Mary Ann Gambitta and Sue and Tom Herrle. We enjoyed all the tasty goodies - pizza, veggies and dip, Ritz cracker hors d’oeuvre, cookies - set out on a lovely table decorated for spring.

“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the 'creative bug' is just a wee voice telling you, “I'd like my crayons back, please.” ― Hugh MacLeod
