In addition to our annual "Swap and Sell" gently used art supplies event, we will have a presentation by artist bookbinder Vivienne Buckert who makes one-of-a kind journals from scratch. She will be giving a talk detailing her bookbinding methods, as well as giving a brief demo as to how watercolors can be easily added into your journaling/sketchbooks. She happily accepts commissions, working with people to create just the journal they desire, and striving to create a beautiful book! A selection of handmade journals will also be available for purchase at the demo.
Vivienne moved to Las Cruces two years ago and is an active member of the Artists of Picacho Hills. Her journals are hand crafted for artists and writers alike, using high quality artists paper. Additionally, Vivienne will include watercolor paper in her artists journals (when requested from watercolorists in commissioned pieces). These journals are a terrific way to record travel memories; document daily life; or as a tool for experimenting with new and different mediums!
We welcome the public to come to our meetings and get to know us and learn about watercolor. Hope to see you there!
