Loss to the RAA Family
On Thursday, September 1, The Redlands Daily Facts announced that Barbara Morse, supporter of the RAA for many years, died on August 23rd. It stated that she was passionate in her support of the arts and of local artists. One of her many endeavors to support the RAA was to invite artists such as Milford Zornes to demonstrate his watercolor technique at a fund raising luncheon. Barbara and her husband Bob were active on the MCAEEF committee for many years until prevented by health concerns. Their gallery room in their lovely home housed art from many local artists and was treasured.
Barbara is survived by her family: son Robert A. Morse and his wife Mary Lou of Forest Falls: Her daughters, Nancy Morse and partner Casey Cunningham of Santa Fe N.M.; Cathy L. Pounds and her husband Alan; Joanne E. Morse and companion Gene Calderon, all of Redlands, and three grandchildren. If any of you have been close to the family, I am sure that they would appreciate your cards or contacts.
Ed Sotello wanted to add:
We were all saddened to hear of Barbara Morse passing. She was an endless supporter of RAA. art education and the arts. She was a great lady and will be missed.

Feasting on the Farm
“Feasting on the Farm” will be held on September 25. This is a “Party for the Necklace” fundraiser for the Redlands Conservancy’s open space efforts. It will be a local farm dinner for 75 guests at our farm and neighboring Powell Farm in San Timoteo Canyon.
Last year, we held a silent auction featuring several local artist’s offerings among other items. We would love to do the same this year, and thought we would ask RAA members (through the newsletter) if they would like to contribute.
For more information, please email Abby Harned at email@example.com.

Teen Artists Participate

Art Camp Teachers Collaborate!
Summer Art Camp 2011 was full of Surprises and fun activities, including teachers such as “Mrs. M.” (Sandra) and “Mrs. Steinweg” collaborating with skills. Ms. Steinweg came in to teach a lesson in Art Camp # 2 where students made Ceramic designs of Hippos with whimsical faces in a cartoon like manner (note photos of returning students Karly L, Andre K.). With Art Camp # 4, teacher Sandra M., came to give a demonstration on the colors for Tie Dying. Ms. Steinweg helped with the tie dying of colors outside while Sandra helped with a Collage lesson indoors.
This was an example of how teachers work together to help out at the R.A.A. These two teachers have worked together for at least 5 years! Yeah for Art Camp, and the Redlands Art Association with another wonderful Summer Art Camp!
Thanks to Mr. John Fisher for his leadership and also to Patty Hayden who set up the Art Camp program running it for many years!
