The Holiday Season is upon us as we celebrate the WAA at the Holiday Party. We will give thanks and reflect back at 2017. We have accomplished a great many things in 2017. The Wednesday Workshop has expanded its curriculum. We added a new instructional class on Tuesday nights. All of our shows have prizes and awards. The Annual Show sold 8 pieces of art. And we expanded the show venues. In 2018, we will look forward to a new change in the newsletter. It will be a simple but special layout that will make reading easier and the process of creating the newsletter much easier. We will add prizes to all shows and announce the dollar values in the prospectuses. We will also expand the show venues to afford those who work in 3D a chance to display. The Saturday presentations will alternate between instructional, hands on and entertaining. There will not be a presentation in October 2018 because of the conflict with the Annual Show. I look forward to 2018 and until I see all of you then have a Happy Holiday and a wonderful 2018.
