Mary Telfer Holden Demo

NAAC Meeting August 6th, 2009

One of our favorite things to do at Richeson is to support instructors! Mary Telfer Holden is a wonderful painter who teaches using a variety of Richeson products. Last evening Mary demonstrated using a variety of Unison and Richeson pastels at the August NAAC(Northwest Area Arts Council) Meeting in Northern Illinois. The event was attended by 10 members and graciously hosted at the River Art Studio of Debbie Howard in Algonquin Illinois.

I heard from Mary this morning and it sounds like everyone had a great time. It was an opportunity to try materials the members may not have had an opportunity to experience before.

Members also tried the Richeson Premium Pastel amazing gritty texture, that grabs layer after layer of pastel! More about this great surface on Monday.

Take a moment and check out the site for NAAC as well as Mary's website.

Have a great weekend!
