ASA Update with Member Meeting Minutes November 6, 2018

11/06/2018

 

CLASSES:

OPEN STUDIO:

The subject for this Thursday, November 8th Guided Open Studio is Teddy Bears or fuzzy stuffed animals. You can also choose to paint trees with a straw. Watercolor or acrylic or any favorite medium you wish.

NOTES:

The Art CoOp sales team has changed their method of recording sales. This requires a change in sales tags, not only on wall art, but, bin art pieces and cards in the rack area. The new sales tags are in the drawer, marked “display tags” in the gray cabinet at the rear of the ASA classroom. The tags should be attached in a manner that makes it easy for them to be removed.

We also have a member, not putting their name on their card sales tag, and therefore, not receiving money for sales. In addition, someone is charging $4.50. The price amount must be an even number as there is no “coin” in sales drawer.
