November Challenge



November Challenge:  Limit Your Palette

 

Pick just 2 colours. Restricting your palette allows you to forget about colour mixing and detail so you can improve on tone. 
Colour gets all the glory, but value does all the work.

“The artist must train not only his eye but also his soul.”

Have Your Say: Member Survey
MGA is always seeking to adapt its programming to suit the needs and interests of you, our members. We need to know what you would like to see in terms of programming and special community-connected activities. Please complete this survey by November 10 to have your say! 

Nominations are Open for the MGA Executive
The MGA constitution specifies that every two years the leadership team must be elected to the various roles. Please click on the link below to fill out the nominations form, where you will find the names of those currently in the position, which you can nominate for re-election. You may also nominate other members of MGA whom you think would provide sustainable vision and service for the next two years.  You may, of course, self-nominate if you have a strong interest in any of these roles.  Once we receive the nominations, we will put the names forward for election this month.  The deadline for completing the nominations is November 10.

Announcing Ontario Trillium Foundation Funding

Your MGA leadership team is pleased to announce that MGA is receiving a grant of $11,300 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund
to help our group rebuild and recover from impacts of COVID-19. With these funds and once pandemic restrictions are lifted, we will secure safe meeting spaces,
where we will live stream workshops and demonstrations with equipment purchased. We will also extend our social media outreach, so we can continue to
increase our membership. Next, our membership registration process will be automated to facilitate information processing and new member orientation. Finally,
we will begin conversations with local art groups to explore opportunities for collaboration.

 MGA extends our sincere thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for its support of our efforts.
