The Olympic Peninsula Art Association will have its December meeting Thursday, Dec. 7, in the Parish Hall of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 525 Fifth. 5th Ave., Sequim.
Doors open at 9:30 a.m. for a meet-and-greet. A short business meeting is at 10 a.m., followed by a demonstration and potluck lunch. Attendees are urged to bring something to share and a place setting.
OPAA members also encourage attendees to bring a donation of food or money for the Sequim Food Bank.
Non-members are welcome. Cost for non-members is $5.
The meeting’s presenter is Port Ludlow’s Patricia Webber, who will speak about “A Process for Creating Abstract Art.”
Starting with everyday images, Webber will explore various ways to find creative inspiration and then look at a gradual, iterative process to create abstract art. She will offer examples that illustrate the process, including the initial inspiration, various iterations and the finished artwork. The presentation will include some discussion and a short, hands-on activity.
“My inspirations include rhythms and contrasts in music, nature, science, weather, and seascapes I work in acrylics, mixed media, and digital photography,” Webber said.
