HOMEWORK for next meeting:At the March meeting, Allison Wilbur will help us go deeper into the world of color with a series of fun activities! Please raid your stash and come prepared with the following supplies (if possible):
- 10-20 charm squares (5-inch squares) representing as many colors around the color wheel as you can (approx. 2 squares per color is ideal)
- 1 or 2 fat quarters in neutral colors
- Prints or solids will work. Please note everybody’s charm squares will be mixed together during the activity, so you might want to label yours with stickers or masking tape so you can collect them at the end.
