Letter from the President

November 2019 President's Letter
 
Letter From The President
At this time of year we love to think about what we’re thankful for. We are especially thankful for you, our OCAG members and friends! Without you we wouldn’t get inspired every day by new ideas. With shorter days and longer nights, this is the perfect time of year to gather as a group at the guild to motivate each other to paint even brighter.
I also wanted to share some bragging rights we have as New Jersey residents. In September, New Jersey became the first state to provide universal access to the arts for all public school children.
You can read about this on the websites Bulletin Board.
"One small step for the arts equals one big step for humankind."
 
Happy Thanksgiving,
AnnMarie Dario
OCAG President
