The Columbian Artists Association will hold its next monthly membership meeting on Tuesday May 7 at 10 am at the Kelso Community and Senior Center Building located at 106 8th Ave NW, Kelso, WA. The meeting room is down the hall near the restrooms. We will be discussing some community activities that we can offer to various age groups. Challenge for May will be "Birds".

Urban Sketchers' outings are the 3rd Tuesday of the month. To carpool we meet on the north end of the JC Penney parking lot at 9:30 am. On April 16, we will hopefully go to the Woodland Tulip Fields for sketching and painting. Any questions, call Eileen at 206-949-9811.
