The Sawnee Artists Association (SAA) is very happy to host two SAA member presenters at the May 18th SAA monthly meeting.  The first presentation will be given by Mary Negron.  She is a self-taught artist passionate about the melding of Eastern and Western art, and works across several mediums including watercolor, oils and Japanese Sumi-e.  Mary will be demonstrating a simple approach of using ink and watercolors.  Learn to create loose sketches and transform them with a splash of color in this interactive presentation. She has lived in Connecticut, Boston, New York and now resides in Cumming, GA.

The second presentation will be given by Kris Straukas.  She is an artist and instructor, and she will be demonstrating color pencil drawing techniques.  Kris will show how to incorporate both dry and water-soluble pencils to show various ways to create rich, vibrant drawings and paintings.
