Hello fellow LAA Members,
The LAA Board has produced another Virtual Monthly Program video with announcements, Member Celebrations, news, and a Demo from the next Zoom Workshop "Animals in Colored Pencil" with Sandra Davis.
Until the threat of COVID-19 subsides, we can't meet in person, so fix up some snacks in the comfort of your home, sit back, and enjoy the program.
The Board is working hard to create alternatives for our members to meet, display their work, and learn. Please share your feedback in the comments below, via email, FaceBook (where the video will also be posted) and our website contact form.
Be sure to visit our website for more details on Events and shows described in the video. LouisvilleArt.org
Thanks for joining us! Stay Creative!

Sounds like a fun evening of art and music!
Hello LAA Members,
As you know, Anne is stepping down as the President of LAA and I have been asked to be your new President.
Now we are in transition...Our lives are full of transitions, those times between one state of existence and the next. We transition from school to summer vacation. We transition from home to college, from college to work, from work to retirement…and on and on. Our transitions can be viewed as voids we impatiently rush through or we can see them as quiet, in between spaces. These spaces are times for reflection, for sorting and considering what has passed. But they are also times for planning and anticipation…for wondering and dreaming.
We look forward in anticipation…this new world hasn’t been built…it doesn’t exist yet. As we move through our transition time here at the LAA, I would like to encourage you to share your dreams, your wondering, what you are planning and anticipating, with me and with each other.
My job as President is to serve you, our members. I want to hear from you. What are your dreams? What projects would you love to see us tackle?
Think too, about how you can serve each other. Paradoxically, we gain more when we give more, particularly of our time and regard. When we reach out to fellow members, having lunch, discussing our work, getting out of a creative block, we strengthen and grow our community. By volunteering, formally or informally, we charge our personal batteries and charge up our organization in the process.
I look forward to hearing from you in the comments on our website or on FaceBook.
Yours in Creativity,
Helen H. Harrison, President, LAA
