We have a lot planned for October. On October 14 Carol Coppi will be teaching"hand designs" to ESL students along with other volunteers from the Omaha Artists Inc. There will be a reception for the “Small Image” art show at Esprit Whispering Ridge on October 15th. On October 21st the Fun Shop will feature Linda Bernett where she will teach a class on alcohol inks with a Zentangle twist. Our October 28th Luncheon at Westside CommunityCenter will feature Kim Hawks from Kimba's Touch Pottery.
I would like to encourage members to connect on Facebook through our face book page https://www.facebook.com/OmahaArtistsInc?fref=ts. It's a good way to promote our shows and to make artconnections. Several artists post pictures of work they have done and it can be a fun way to connect.
