A note from Mary

The MEMORY BOX PAINT-IN on Saturday was a wonderful day for Penn’s Woods Painters. We had 17 members come to paint, and I am especially proud because this was a gift from the heart. The end result of a day’s painting by these gals, was that all the boxes are being donated. Purely a selfless and beautiful act of kindness. Another reason why I love PWP.

I was so darn proud of my two pieces I could have danced. So a huge shout out to Carol Henry and Judy Vetock, for their hard work and professional presentations. The food was fabulous….and Debby Thorpe has volunteered to be our Hospitality chairperson. That will be a treat for our Chapter. Again, I am proud to be your President.  Mary Lank

Do you enjoy Coloring Books?

You may not realize it, but you may find a home with Penn’s Woods Painters!  How fun it is to have a plain page come alive with color.  There are so many options for filling the page, pens, pencils, markers…how about watercolors, acrylics, pastels, stamps, stencils and of course, a sprinkling of glitter?

We all share the love of decorative painting, and our goal is to spread the joy that art brings to our lives.  Browse our website and newsletters to see what’s in the works. Join us for a meeting!

Warning!  We color outside the lines!
