November 5th –  Nov. 5  SYCAMORE TREES ON HOPKINS ST. Berkeley between Colusa and the North Branch library: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/23491900 Carol Ginsberg says, “They are a wonderful green/gold right now and if we do not have a storm, the leaves should stay that way for a bit.   Park on Hopkins near Colusa.  As you go towards the bay, the tennis courts are on the left.  King pool is behind the tennis courts and usually open for lap swim and will let you use the bathrooms.”

November 9th – POTLUCK MEETING/CRITIQUE at EC Community Center.

November 12th – VINEYARD ON CHURCH LN San Pablo.  Suggested by Ikuko This is the end of the season and the vines should be turning golden.  Take San Pablo Ave north from El Cerrito to Church Lane and turn right (just before La Strada restaurant) about 2 blocks.  Turn right again and take the first entrance into St Joseph’s cemetery.  Park at the bottom of the hill near the office.  Look up for the view of the hills behind the vineyard.

November 19th – FAIRVIEW & TAMALPAIS El  Cerrito Hills just south of Cutting Blvd. From The Arlington turn downhill onto Cutting Blvd.  Take the 1st left onto Tamalpais Av,( the 2nd left is Fairview Av) and follow either of these to a large, spacious curve of the road where both roads come together.  We will assemble there at the foot of an extended open hill with paths above the road. This is very near where Ganges Av joins and Tamalpais Ct enters.  Look at a map, all these roads curve into each other.


December 2015 & January 2016 are the months when we HOPE it will rain so much that we are not able to go outdoors!  Last year the weather was lovely & sunny.  Once again, we will schedule Blake Gardens for these two months.  Go when your Holiday schedule permits. Directions:  Take Arlington Blvd to Rincon Road (behind Arlington Community Church and across the street from Kensington  Library from the south.  There is another right turn on Rincon from the north but maybe hard to see the sign until you are upon it.  Blake Gardens is in the middle of Rincon and there is a parking lot and a small gate to the left of the larger entryway.  Call Charlotte at 510-914-8226 if you need more information. Blake Gardens are closed Dec 22Jan 2.  No  painting Dec 25 or Jan 1.

November 9th – Monthly meeting

The program for the November 9th meeting is our Holiday Potluck Celebration–so bring your festive food to share.
Members may also bring one of your art pieces to show and share. We are also anticipating a discussion about our artwork led by Charlotte Britton.
Art books donated for the benefit of the Friends of the El Cerrito library will be on display, so bring cash or check to spend on their behalf!
There is no mini art show planned for this meeting.  After November’s meeting, we do not meet again till February.  At the February meeting, the theme will be open.  Then every other month we will have a theme (not yet decided) and the following month will be open themed. The themes for the year will be published in The Palette and listed at the February Meeting.
