sosa logo southern oregon society of artistsMonday, June 23rd at 7:00PM at the Medford Library, S.O.S.A. will offer a special, free to the public, New Art Product Program and Demonstration.

Multi-generational, family owned and operated since 1968, the La Petite Gallery evolved into Central Art Supply.  The most complete art store between Sacramento and Portland, it leaves regional artists wanting for little.

Adam Bunch will lead off the evening demonstrating his master skills and offering tips using Copic Markers. Following light refreshments, Central Art owner, Dan Ebert,  will introduce us to a variety of new products including a demonstration of Pebeo Paint.  New to me,  the finished product looks like shiny melted glass swirled together.  It’s awesome.

We are creative people…let’s explore and have some fun for the sheer joy of it!
Join us Monday evening at the downtown Medford Library at 7:00pm.
