July 27th 2016 - Casual Jam/ Vacations

The summer heat kept searing us alive, but the brave souls drew anyway! Plus the Shang's A/C was fixed, so we were saved!  The theme for July was casual/ vacations and some fun stories happened around that.

Thanks to those who joined us for the evening and shared their creativity: Suzanne Marsden, Clayton Jacobs, Dwight Williams, Scott MacLellan, Andrew Stutt, Naheen Ahmed, James Rule and Liz Walsh.

Thanks also Don Kwan and the other great folks at the Shanghai Restaurant who took care of our needs, and continue to support co-operative art-making in a safe and welcome atmosphere!

Cheers,
Suzanne.
