October 2009 Memory Box Painting Program
with Gwen Kenneally
Our October meeting will be dedicated to creating a new supply of beautiful Memory Boxes for hospitals that request them for their bereavement programs.
A presentation about the history of the program, and how the hospitals use the painted boxes in gift baskets for grieving families. Also, the journey of a Memory Box from purchase to delivery.
Memory Boxes to paint( boxes were available at the September Chapter meeting. If you have some at home please base coat them in colors of your choice. (Pastels work well).
We will try to provide enough base coated boxes for members who were not at the September meeting.
Five different patterns to use
Some paints will be provided. We have some left over Folk Art seminar paint to share. Thicket, Lemonade, Lemon Custard, Lime Yellow, Yellow Ocher, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber
Printed instructions for prepping and finishing the Memory Boxes.
