January is such an interesting month. Holidays are over and seemingly we get back into a routine again. It also seems most of us look to bettering ourselves in any number of ways. For the Art Club, our January resolution was to expand our artistic skill levels and try new methods and/or mediums, etc. So, lucky for us, SunBird has some wonderful talent to draw upon and on January 9, SunBird resident Art Norby conducted a day long class in oil painting. His impressive skills excited us all and we turned out in good numbers (some of us having never painted in oil up to those who have accomplished this art form) and all came away with paintings to be proud of and an expanded appreciation for this art form. Now February brings continued growth and our 2016 Challenge, Hats, will be showcased the second half of this month. Be sure to check out our displays which change every two weeks and the challenges always bring surprises as each of us interprets the theme in our own unique way. Definitely not to be missed!
