We’re RARE’n to Go!
Join us for the kickoff of the RARE II project!
Sunday, March, 25, 2012, RMSBA will meet at the Mamie Doud Eisenhower Library in Broomfield, at 1PM.

The Library is located at: 3 Community Park Road Broomfield, CO 80020
PH: 720.887.2300
Susan Panjabi, a botanist, from the Colorado Natural Heritage Program will give a presentation on the rare plants of Colorado.
We’ll talk about how to chose and find a plant, and how to begin your illustration.
If you have already started your RARE II drawing, no matter what stage it is in, please bring it for questions, critique, comments, and inspiration!

Please come and join the project!

Light refreshments will be served.

New Workshop Opportunities
Please take a look at some new education opportunities under Workshops. Looking for a way to touch up your drawing skills, get really comfortable with your drawing tools and techniques? There's a nice offering for you this October. And really indulge yourself with a great weekend trip to work plein aire in Salida, in September. These classes taught by RMSBA members Susan Rubin and Marjorie Leggitt. Look under Workshops to the right.

It's time to do the dues!
Last call to get your dues in for this year. RMSBA/ASBA directories will not contain your contact information if dues are not remitted by end of month. Get an application/renewal of membership form under Membership to the right.
February Member's Meeting
The February 26 Member's Meeting comprised a raft of activities. Members discussed the coloring book, developing into an educational project for RMSBA to reach out to new patrons; preliminary information regarding RARE II, and a member's critique . Here's a shot of Heidi Snyder, presenting one of her paintings for a spirited critique with other members.
