July Meeting - Sonya Vasquez

We have been on the lookout for people with interesting occupations to spark our creativity. Our speaker for July 12 is a wax sculptor for Ripley's museums. Sonya Vasquez will bring pictures and samples of her work. In addition to her presentation, she'll answer our questions.

This looks to be a very interesting meeting.

Bring a notebook and curiosity.
