Dearest SHA Members,
Welcome back to another wonderful art filled exciting 2019 – 2020 year. Big changes are coming this year so please take note of this new address where SHA will now meet. Same schedule, 2 art camps, and plenty of opportunities will be coming our way. With great sadness SHA will not be meeting at the residences of Myrna and Ed Hume.

This date has not been set as yet. Persons that have books checked out will be able to purchase for $5.00.
Our new meeting place will be our first meeting presenting Anita Lehmann with Expressive Drawing demo and design workshop. Please bring your lunches. There are places to eat in the Sunrise Village mall.
