Palm Desert artist Luce Felts will be the guest artist and featured speaker at a meeting and art workshop being staged this weekend by the Imperial Valley Arts Association.
Felts will first give a presentation and demonstration on painting miniatures at the I.V. Art Association's monthly meeting at 6:30 p.m. Friday in the Desert Galeria, 1560 Ocotillo Drive, suite D, in El Centro.
A workshop on painting miniatures will start at 9 a.m. Saturday in the Desert Galeria.
The Friday meeting is open to the public, however, the workshop is $27 for non-association members and $26 for members.
Felts has been painting since 1960 and gives lectures and workshops throughout California and Arizona. She speaks at I.V. Art Association meetings once a year.
Said Felts: "I paint because I want the world that other people live in to be as beautiful as mine, as I see and interpret it. My joy in life is waking in the morning and realizing that I will be painting today."
