LAA/PAL General Meeting - May 9 at 7:30:   EdProgram by Lorna Stevens.  Lorna Stevens will guide us in the subject of Expressive Clay Portraits: What makes a portrait memorable instead of a mere likeness? We will explore this question while we review the basics of working with air dry clay, the proportions of the face and head, and effective portrait modelling techniques.  Meeting will be held at the Bothwell Arts Center, 2466 8th Street, Livermore.
