UAC held its first Open Membership meeting, with a hands-on presentation by artists Adam Lewis and Wren Rogillio. They presented “Fun with Plaster,” to demonstrate the possibilities for a children’s workshop. The SAC members in attendance enjoyed painting small plaster shapes.
Our next Open Membership meeting is Monday, March 16th, 4pm, at the United Methodist Church, Farmerville. The meeting is very informal, and we will have an artist/presenter. We welcome anyone interested in furthering the arts in Union parish.
