SCVWS Members:

Join us as we present a special online demo:

August 21st @ 1:30 p.m. (pdt)

Guy Magallanes will demonstrate some easy fixes or changes to paintings or images that have been submitted by students.  

In addition, on a first come, first serve basis, Member's may submit an image or painting that needs a "fix or change" by Guy. If you submit a painting, note that Guy will actually paint on your painting to make the change. If you submit an image, then Guy will "talk" through the necessary change. No guarantee your painting or image will be used.

If you have any questions, or want to submit a painting or image, please email me at the leader email address.

Note: The link for the youtube presentation will be emailed separately to all registrants on the day of the demo.
