MEETINGS & DEMONSTRATIONS

Our next RCAS meeting will be April 16, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. Location is the Richardson Public Library. The April Demo Artist will be Walt Davis, demonstrating Watercolor.

Walt Davis, signature member and past president of the Southwestern Watercolor Society, began painting in watercolor over thirty years ago. He studied first with Faith Helen Foust at Eastfield Community College then with Bud Biggs.

He later attended workshops with Doug Walton, Louise Cadillac, Carole Barnes, Frank Webb, Mark Mehaffey, Richard Stephens, Joseph Zbukvitch, and noted bird artist John P. O’Neil.

Davis has taught watercolor, figure drawing, and plein air sketching at Eastfield Community College, Amarillo College, Panhandle Art Center, San Angelo Museum of Art, and in his studio in Commerce. He has conducted demonstrations and workshops in Amarillo, Brownsville, Dallas, San Angelo and nine other Texas cities.

His paintings hang in private collections in Washington State, Florida, Colorado, New Mexico, and cities throughout Texas. His work has been accepted into exhibitions of the American Watercolor Society, Southwestern Watercolor Society, Texas Watercolor Society, Richardson Civic Art Society, Greenville Art League, and Western Federation of Watercolor Societies.

Paint Out May 4th at City Line!

The date for our RCAS Paint-Out Event has been changed.  Due to the weather forecast for Saturday, April 13th, we must move it to an alternate date.  We had originally planned our alternate date to be April 27th, but that conflicts with the pick-up date for the Spring Show, so the new date will be Saturday, May 4th, beginning at 10:00 a.m. in the CityLine central plaza on State Street just South of the George Bush freeway at 1150 State St, Richardson, TX 75082.  The plaza is on the West side of Plano Road, just South of the main State Farm headquarters building. We will gather at the central plaza area near the “Cow jumping over the Moon” sculpture (see attached photo) at 10:00AM, paint for a couple of hours then have a brief “show and tell”.  Afterward, as many as would like to can join us for lunch at one of the local restaurants.READ MORE!
