Our treasurer, Vicki Dibbern, recently received the following letter from Judy McLeod, program director of REFLECTIONS:
“On behalf of the students and teachers of REFLECTIONS, the Central Virginia Summer Regional Governor’s School for Middle School Students Gifted in the Visual Arts, I write to thank the Virginia Watercolor Guild (sic) for your kind financial support of our program.
Our students come from the public and private schools of Charlottesville City, Albemarle, Greene, and Nelson Counties. They are busy working on art projects related to this year’s theme “Me, Myself, and I” which deals with portraiture, self-image, expressive portraits, and personal geography. Happily, we are using watercolors and water media we acquired with your kind assistance…..Thanks for your continuing support of education in the arts for students from our region.”
