SAQA North Texas Meeting Report

13 members of the North Texas circle met on April 19 at Petit Atelier in Dallas. The topic of the day was "social media," and several members shared their experiences with blogs, Facebook, websites and Pinterest.  It was a great discussion!

Our next meeting will be August 16th.  Please mark your calendars -- we are going to meet earlier, at 10 am, and we would like everyone to bring their lunch.  The meeting will be a critique session, and a local artist/art educator will be looking at our work.  I'll provide more details closer to the meeting date.

If you are interested in joining our growing circle, check out the Facebook group  for the latest news and ongoing discussions.
