South Surrey and White Rock Art Society is a community of Artists Sharing their passion for Art, Art Education, and the Promotion of our Society at Large.
Do not expect Zoom just to work! If you plan on taking a class or just using
it, test it first. I started using
computers when there was no keyboard, just punch cards, so I have a little
experience! I have used to computer to connect
to clients around the world with little problems. This week it all caught up to me when I was
using Zoom! I joined the Board Zoom meeting
using my desktop and discovered the webcam did not work. I had moved from Windows 7 to windows 10 some
years ago and the webcam only worked on Windows 7. I then realized that there was no microphone attached,
so I could only listen and watch the meeting.
Maybe that was the reason it was a quick meeting! I tried my laptop and by the end of the meeting
I got it to work. I am now getting ready
for my wife Sandy to do a Zoom Art lesson, so I have been checking which of my
3 desktops and 4 laptops is best for her.
The answer is, I will be purchasing some new hardware! The laptops that I do have with built in webcams
seem to have problems with the speakers or the microphone.
What I thought was going to be a breeze, was anything
but! Be smarter than your webmaster and
check to see you can Zoom with your computer now! Then, Zoom a friend and do some art work

Well without regular meetings, it has been a challenge to come up with a Challenge, but we have! The "May be at home challenge". Due to the high cost of doing this on the internet there will be no prizes!
| Hopefully you will enjoy the time you spend on it while you think of the rest of us, wishing we could be together to share the experience.
The subject of the challenge is open. I had thought of doing something on Covid-19 like a boot stepping on it or have it in the background of the painting. Others have suggested something springy like roses. Choose whatever will put a smile on your face and you will enjoy doing.
You can post your painting on our up on the web site, to Facebook page (South Surrey & White Rock Art Society) or email it to Webmaster@ArtSociety.ca by May 31, 2020.

Here is an application that the schools are using that allow teachers to connect with their students and carry on classes. It is called Zoom and we will be using it. We hope you will find it easy to use and have fun with it. To help you, we have a link to a Youtube video Joining a Zoom Call for the First Time; Fun and Easy Online Connection .

You may want to try your own meeting, by connecting with artists, friends or family. Give it a try, it is free but only for 40 minutes, then your meeting is dropped unless the host is a paid member. The Society will be a paid host, so you can join us and stay on as long as we want. Members may be able to use the Society's Paid account for unlimited get together if we can work out a method to control it.
