Hi Everyone
We will be doing CHRISTMAS HAMPERS this year, and this year the money will go to the “STROKE FOUNDATION”.
If you are coming to the meeting on Saturday 17th October,  please bring along non perishable goods with you e.g. canned foods, groceries, wine, noodles, etc. (please check the expiry date) and pass them on to Nancy Young or Jessie Kum Edmonds on the day.
We would like to thank everyone who bring donated goods for the Christmas Hamper.
Our next meeting will be held on Saturday, 17th October 2015,  1.30pm at the Meadowbank Community Centre, 29 St Johns Road, Meadowbank  (next to Barfoot & Thompson).
We have a speaker by the name of Ginette Wang, who is an artist in many forms from a very young age.  During her stay in Hong Kong, while working with her western painting media, she fell in love with the subtlety, immediacy, and the expressive characteristic of the Chinese painting.  Her artworks centre around beautiful landscapes, birds and flowers. She uses a direct approach with this challenging medium and sometimes applies cross medium skills to portray a tranquil and zen feeling with a touch of life in play that nature inspires to her. Her paintings are in private collections locally and overseas. She has been teaching art/language/craft for many years at Hong Kong YWCA for English speaking members and her own studio.  Now she teaches at Mairangi Arts Centre and organize her own workshops.
She will also be demonstrating and showing us the intricate art of Chinese watercolour and ink painting.
Ginette will bring some of her watercolour paintings, Chinese paintings and art greeting cards and her book for members to buy or order.  Please note that it will be a cash and carry sale as usual.
(So cash only, no visa/ credit card/ cheque). 
Please come along and bring friends, men are also welcome to enjoy a fun and social afternoon.
Afternoon tea will be served, new members are always welcomed. 
Registration Costs:   NZCA members  $2.00   Non Members  $3.00   (to cover costs of hall hire and afternoon tea) 
A raffle will be held during the afternoon   -   $1 for 1 ticket or $2 for 3 tickets (no obligation to purchase)
