Check out the newly re-designed CBAS website (up in January) for all information about the organization and for updates on current and future events. This will now consolidate website and blog as a good central location for keeping up with what's happening.
Ready for a great "working" field trip? CBAS is sponsoring 2 Turkish marbling weekend workshops with Ann Alaia Woods in her Columbus studio: 3304 Grasmere Avenue, Columbus, Ohio. Choose either April 25-26 or May 2-3. Saturday will be instructional and Sunday will be an open studio day for experimentation. Minimum participation is 6 students, maximum 8.
