No charge for these Study Group Sessions. Please note, you must register for each Study Group session individually.

We'll continue to study the work of  Sherri Thornton. Sherri is known for both her contemporary versals, a.k.a Kersals, as well as her Word Paintings. 

Kristi's Word Painting made under the direction of Sherri

These sessions are led by members, sharing what they have learned. They do not claim to be masters. Members and guests may register for any session--there is no requirement to attend all sessions. The aim is to share knowledge with newbies and to provide a refresher for those with more experience.  

The session will be led by Kristi Darwick. We plan to record this session. Kristi asks that you remind her!

2. Quick review of a basic concept/technique for Romans

3. Review the day's topic

4. Continue with Project to reinforce the topic
