Come join artist Linda Pacel, member and on the Board of Buffalo Art Guild.  Spring is for flowers and color, to help us break out from the winter white, come join Linda Pacel and learn some basic drawing skill techniques to help you capture your favorite flowers.  Linda will teach you how to draw from a photograph using basic drawing techniques. Then you will learn how to take your drawing and create a basic watercolor of your flower. Finally you can enjoy doing a loose watercolor or your flower on Yupo Paper. (Like painting on glass)
 
This program is for all levels of creative abilities. Feel free to bring a photo of your favorite flower, or you can use one of the many Linda will have on hand.  All supplies are included.

Congregational Development Award 2018
 

 Buffalo Presbyterian Church, undertook a transformative restructuring of our congregation and its place in our community.  This concept named, Together and Growing, (TAG), began its work in 2012 as part of the Mission in a Changing World Program sponsored by the Presbytery of The Twin Cities Area.  The four strategic objectives that were the focus for BPC and TAG were:
 

1.To energize Sunday morning worship & Education

2.To share our faith by using fine arts opportunities that intersect with our community.

3.To share an enriching ministry with seniors (new retirees) in our community.

 

4.To stay committed to children

 
We designed an opportunity this Spring, 2018, to engage further with newly retired and elderly through fine arts. In May 2018, an application was sent to the Committee on Congregational Vitality, specifically requesting funds in the area of Congregational Development.
 
In August, 2018. BPC was awarded a Congregational Development Grant. This grant, Ministry through the Arts will allow us to engage further with newly retired and retired people through fine arts events.
 

Once a month, art events held at BPC, will be developed for people both within our congregation and community. These events will have local instructors teach/demonstrate various activities that will be opened to the public and will be focused on connecting our church to our community, including a strong partnership with the Buffalo Art Guild.
