Using an oil paint medium very much like oversized crayons called Paintstiks®, Diana has perfected an unique application known as the ”Côté Squiggle.” She paints by calling upon her “inner three-year-old” and “scribbles” layer upon layer of erratic lines of color on the canvas. This eventually leads to a visual weaving of these individual lines into a textural tapestry that is both subtle and richly elegant. This is especially evident on larger canvases where the application holds equal importance to the study of light.

The Newington Art League has not had a meeting or demonstration since March of 2019. Our meetings normally take place in the Newington Senior and Disabled Center and they are just beginning to open the building up for their own scheduled activities. When they begin to allow groups to reserve rooms for meetings we will do so.
Our meetings normally are held at 6:30 pm on the second Wednesdays of September through November and March through May. Each meeting is typically followed by a demonstration by a professional artist. The plan would be to continue with this format.
We would love to hear from you if you are interested in art and would like to join us. Contact Pat Tanger -email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to the Covid pandemic, the Newington Senior and Disabled Center Senior Center will not be permitting group meetings in the facility through the end of this year. This prevents the Newington Art League from holding its monthly meetings and demonstrations as well as Monday morning painting workshops. In light of this situation, the league is not collecting dues for membership for this year (September 2020-August 2021).
The league plans to resume its meetings, demonstrations and workshops as soon as the Senior Center deems it is safe to do so. The league will begin to collect membership dues at that time.
Art league members met at Mill Pond last Monday for an outdoor social session. We plan to meet again next Monday, September 28 at 1:30 weather permitting. New members are welcome.
Bring a chair, your mask and your art supplies to Mill Pond for some face to face contact with other artists. We will meet up to the right of the tennis courts near the parking lot.
