RAA Library Announcement
Yes, I know the Library has been neglected but I now can at least find it again. There are so many classes going especially in the summer that so much is stored in front of the shelves that I had to wait until later. We have lots of great books there, many are misfiled but I will try to sort them out. There are lots of new books I need to process as well as culling out old, torn or uninteresting books. Those I will put on the top shelf nearest the kitchen for the great sum of $1 per book, payable at the desk. After 2 weeks I will take the leftovers to the Smiley Public Library.
Now I need you all to check your studio shelves and bring back the books you took home…last month? Last year? Doesn’t matter, just bring them in for others to be able to use. This works on the the honor system! Many thanks!

Should the Arts be Part of Education Today?
“Art classes teach students not only art techniques but also, thinking processes and ways to express themselves.”
- Natalie Lui, 11th grade, RHS, winner essay contest on Public Schools, the Greatest Freedom.
“Art is an essential of our humanness. Without it, we are less than we can be.”
- George Riday, past president of Redlands Art Association, and Cultural Arts Commission
“Without the arts, children cannot achieve their full potential.”
J. Paul Getty Trust, from The Power of Arts to Transform Education.
Does American culture today model the behavior that we want all children to achieve their full potential? I’m looking into establishing a “forum,” inviting any and all participants, for the purpose of opening dialogue on concepts concerning Art as an appropriate community awareness actuation of intent: the intent to preserve the arts as a viable experience in the education of our youth.
I’ll try to pick a time, or times, to allow as many opportunities as possible for over a two to three month period. No hurry, think about it and I’ll let you know if the opportunities arise.
Send me your email address (email@example.com)if you want to be added to a list of interested participants. I’ll keep everyone informed via email or real mail if you ask.
Enjoy the holidays. John Fisher, Co-Chair Education Committee
Upcoming Excursion to the Pasadena Museum of California Art
There is an upcoming excursion planned for Sunday, January 23rd, to the Pasadena Museum of California Art to view “Scenic View Ahead” show.
Read the write up in Westways Magazine (AAASo Ca Publication) pg. 52-54. The show features watercolors done by prominent California watercolorists who were hired to paint the covers for Westways from 1927 to 1970. Westways was one of the few magazines to use original artist work for the cover.
We will leave Redlands at 9:00 am. We will eat lunch in old town Pasadena and view the exhibit from noon – 3:00 pm. Your Cost: lunch, museum ticket $7 (auto club members $2 off), donation for gas. I will take sign ups by:
- email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Please include RAA in title)
- or by phone: (909) 867-9152
Either way you contact me, please give me your name, telephone/email. I can take four riders. If we have more people we need one more volunteer driver.
Thanks all…Margaret Spiess
