10-1:00 Spring Membership Show Check-In
Jack Benny Center


Tanya Facchini Leintz, Art Program Coordinator for the David Adler Music and Art Center, reviewed the Fall Membership Show art at the Jack Benny Center and invited Jeff Harold, Maggie Kraus, Leslie Scott, Susan Schneider and Chris Tanner to display their work at a February show at the Adler. This is an annual LCAL by-invitation exhibit at Adler, which they have done for several years. That opening reception date will be Friday, February 2, 6-8:00 pm.

If you are new to the Adler Center, it’s entrance is a traffic light on SH 21 (Milwaukee Ave.) located 1000 feet south of SH 137 (Peterson and Buckley Roads), across from the Libertyville Fire station. It's open 9-9:00 pm Monday-Thursday, and 9-2:00 pm on Saturday.

The purpose of this League is to create more interest in art in Lake County, Illinois and to develop a higher appreciation of visual art. It shall do this through art exhibitions, festivals, demonstrations of art techniques, lectures, critiques and sharing of ideas, inspiration and encouragement between members.

It's a new year!

Programs Director Sue Schneider will be doing a drawing demo with a live model. Members are encouraged to bring their own newsprint pads and sketchbooks and draw the model as well. We will have an experienced professional model who is paid for this session. He or she will be clothed and may be wearing a costume. This same demo/participation setup that was used in our September meeting and many members asked that it be done again soon. Start your new year drawing a live model, and if you have never done figurative drawing before you should take this chance to try it among friends.
