At our May meeting  our guest speaker was Vicki Kolbet of the Sierra Nevada Decorative Artists.

09-09-20140508 193210Vicki has been the coordinator for the Sierra Nevada Decorative Artists as well as the Carson Valley Desert Brushes for the past 13 years. Together they have been working with the Nevada Woodchucks in producing Cradles for distribution to our local Charities.

These groups not only paint the cradles with beautiful decorations but also crochet blankets, sew pads and blankets and search for dolls and bears to fill the cradles. The Nevada Woodchucks are very grateful for their contribution to our toy effort each year.

They are always looking for new members.
They sponsor a "Learn to Paint" every year which teaches some basic Tole painting techniques. You can visit the Society of Decorative Painters by clicking on THIS LINK.
