The Wellman Garden Club met Nov. 16 at the Senior Center. President Powell opened the meeting by thanking attendees for coming. Marilyn read a beautiful Helen Steiner Rice Thanksgiving poem called Fill Your Heart with Thanksgiving, followed by a humorous Thanksgiving poem about the effects of the Thanksgiving meal.
Eleven members answered roll call with comments about what art projects they like to do. The club’s talented group mentioned quilting, rock painting, tole painting, paint by number, paintings on wood, crochet, embroidery, cross-stitch, sewing, gardening, knitting, and crewel.
They briefly discussed their Christmas luncheon to be held on Dec. 21 at noon. It will be catered by Janet Stutzman at Asbury UMC Fellowship Hall. Members are asked to bring donations for the Wellman Food Pantry.
Cindy Adam gave the program, instructing those present how to do mandala rock painting.
She suggested that the rock be painted with a background color for better contrast. Then, if using a pattern, center the stencil on the rock and trace the design on it with a light-colored pencil. Next, use the dotting tools to place dots in geometric patterns of beautiful colors. Words or pictures may be painted on, then decorated with the dotting process. When finished, spraying the rock with a clear acrylic spray will protect the paint and give it luster.
It was entertaining for the group to see each of their rock patterns develop.
When finished with their rock painting, club members snacked on pumpkin dump cake, apple bars, nuts, chocolates, juice and coffee.
