Earlier this month the Art Docents of Los Gatos had their second volunteer appreciation print party at the ICA Print Center. It was so so so FUN!

 
This is what they said: “Having had no experience with printmaking I felt more comfortable after I made the first print. The positive energy of the group and the relaxed atmosphere helped to bring out the creative part of me. I had fun discovering the other side of my brain!” –Gina Bommarito

“I have found this workshop to be a popular way for our members to get to know each other and encourages long-lasting relationships. When we have the opportunity to make art, among friends, in a non-threatening environment, with careful instruction, not only do we all benefit from the process but most often the product turns out well, too. Thank you, ICA and Fanny, for opening your studio after hours so that we can afford these rich experiences for our worthy volunteers/members.” –Elaine Cardinale, Education/Tours Chair or the Arts Docents of Los Gatos

Holding this monotype workshop fulfilled the Art Docents of Los Gatos continuing education component of its volunteer program. This includes: team building opportunities; art/techniques training; self expression and self fulfillment opportunities; rewards for members in acknowledgement of their volunteer work; and endeavors to create lasting relationships/friendships among members.
