I have mentioned to several of you about or opportunity to work with the Onslow All County Art Students all day May 1, 2010 at White Oak High School. Deb Pylypiw, art teacher at WOHS, has helped organize the event with several high school art teachers throughout the county. This event is a special opportunity to highlight the brightest visual artists in our county and give the proper acknowledgement they deserve. It is also a way to give credit to the fine art instructors in our county. It is a privilege and honor for OOPS to be asked to teach the plein air portion of this round-robin style event. Karen, Stephen, and I have agreed to teach the sessions while all the other OOPS members will paint along side the students and offer help and encouragement... for those feeling uneasy doing that we simply want you to show up and paint. Please make plans to attend this event on Saturday, May 1st at whatever time you can... if it's all day or for a couple hours... no matter... your time and talents will be appreciated. The students (approx. 15 per session) will be working in a limited palette of acrylics... red, yellow, ultramarine blue, and titanium white. Deb has sent us a schedule for the days events which is listed below .
