Sonja Richardson Project

Our sister chapter White Mountain will be presenting this painting class with Sonja Richardson. See details below.

Hello WMDPG members,

We have a new Zoom class we have lined up for your painting pleasure.  Sonja Richardson can no longer attend the New England Traditions (NET) convention in October to teach several classes, so we reached out to her to see if she would be willing to teach her ‘Cats and Bats’ design and she said yes.  How wonderful is that?

Date: Friday, October 1st

Time: 1:00PM – 5:00PM EST

Fee: $40.00 and includes the surface kit, prep instructions, packet, after class recording, and post class enhanced chat notes.

Attached below is the registration form.  Because Sonja has to ship kits, the signup deadline is Friday, September 17th.  You can email me to save your spot while your check is in transit.

I was signed up to paint this piece at NET.  Can you tell I am doing the happy dance?  Hope you can join me.

Memory Box Program

We have the opportunity to join our sister chapter White Mountain to paint via zoom the memory box with Maria Grimanis. Please see information below.

Hello WMDPG members,

We have an exciting memory box project program planned for Saturday, September 11th from noon to 4:00PM EST.  Maria Grimanis is our guest teacher and she will be teaching a new design she created just for our members.  This copyrighted design is called: ‘Surrounded by Angels.’ Maria painted hers on a 9 ¼” paper-mache box.

I am accepting signups now for this free program that will be taught virtually via Zoom.  The prep instructions and line drawing are available now.  In the meantime, please find an appropriate surface.   Before registering, please check your schedules.  Only registered attendees that sign into the Zoom portal on September 11th for Maria’s class will be emailed the complete packet after the event has concluded and the recording.  No exceptions, so please do not ask.

If you are committed to signing up and will attend the program, please email me at
