On April 15, 2013, CVABA members visited Lee Halstead at McGuffey Art Center in Charlottesville, Virginia. Lee welcomed us into the classroom where we set up to draw or paint. We toured the galleries on each floor and were able to step inside several of the studios including Lee's studio where you see Judy Gilman-Hines and Hazel Buys admiring one of Lee's sunflower paintings.
CVABA members Holly Maillet from Charlottesville and Cindy Wood from Lynchburg were able to join us for the first time. Attendance was good, with twelve us present. We agreed that it was a day well spent and we look forward to another visit to McGuffey Art Center in the future.
