You can see Helen’s love of art and her desire to inform others about it in her role of Program Coordinator. Helen brought professional artist demonstrators to the CAS monthly meetings to provide our members and guests with valuable information on a variety of painting and other artwork techniques. Helen also introduced the community to numerous artists and their various talents as she filmed the Chelmsford Art Society’s demonstrations, and they were then viewed by many on Chelmsford local television stations.
Helen’s wisdom and creative output were a large part of our July 4th events as she organized its many aspects, and was always happy to contribute wherever needed – from decorating for the event to selling tickets for our fundraising raffles.
We are grateful for her many years of service to the Chelmsford Art Society. Thank you Helen!
