MamaCita Sunday Salon Series & artist of the month

From the late 1800s to the early 1900s, visionary women met to discuss art and literature, listen to topical lectures and learn the latest artistic techniques. In this spirit, we are pleased to announce a series of workshops led by the progressive female artists of MamaCita.

The first of our Salons will be conducted by MamaCita resident tech guru, Karen Hunter-McLaughlin entitled Digital Image Preparation for Artists on Sunday, January 30, 2011, from 11:00am - 3:00pm.

• Best art photography practices

Karen Hunter-McLaughlin has been a MamaCita member since 2007. Karen wears many hats! She is a mother of two children ages 14 and 19 and has been known to point out that although her children are older, they don't need her less, they just need her differently. While juggling the skills needed to parent her older kids with finding time to dedicate to her art, she also holds a long time position as a pre-press specialist at a commercial printing company, Independence Press. An admitted computer geek, Karen also has a digital design business, teaches classes in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign and is currently writing a color curriculum for the Philadelphia School System. Although she has dabbled in digital art as a medium, Karen mostly works in oil and acrylic paint, colored pencil and also has a fondness for 3-D wire sculptural work.
