The Prince William Art Society will meet November 25 at 7:30 PM 

at the Tall Oaks Community Center, 12298 Cotton Mill Drive, Lake Ridge, 

VA. Following our business meeting there will be a break for refreshments followed by a program presented by Fine Artist Mike Flynn. Intrigued by the unique properties and techniques of watercolor, Mr. Flynn prefers to explore impressionism with loose brush work and the 

freedom to capture his own subjective visual experience. He has exhibited throughout Northern Virginia, been juried into several exhibits and shows in KY, VA and MD, and his artwork is in private 

collections across the United States. Mr. Flynn teaches watercolor and mixed media classes at the Center for the Arts - Candy Factory, Manassas, VA and he is also a member of p-ART-ners in Manassas, the 

Clifton Art Guild, and The Loft Gallery where his work can be viewed:

The Prince William Art Society will meet October 28th at 7:30 PM at 12298 Cotton Mill Drive, Lake Ridge, VA. Daniel Nie MFA will present "Creative Thinking, A Skill Everyone Needs" with a demonstration and opportunity for a hands on experience. Those who wish to participate are invited to bring sumi - e ink, a #5 round brush, and paper (newsprint is recommended). Meetings and programs are free and open to the public. 

Date: 09.23.19 (Monday)

In September, rather than having a guest speaker, all members are invited to bring a piece of their art to share with the group. Members can discuss their art and answer questions. This will give us a chance to get to know one another better, recognize other members work, and learn from others triumphs and mistakes.  You are under no obligation to participate. These Show & Tell programs are always fun so I hope you'll join us - and bring a guest!


The PWAS President's Comments:

PWAS membership is growing and we would love to have you join us. We meet the 4th Monday of the month at 7:30 at Tall Oaks Community Center, 12298 Cotton Mill Drive, Woodbridge, VA 22192. At our February meeting our members voted to start having meetings in July, and August. In the past we have not had meetings during those months. Come as a visitor and I think you'll find you will want to join.
