Sip N' Paint Night
By Raul Rodriguez, EIT | K-12 and Internal Activities Co-Chair
As the online year continued, the Internal Activities Committee continued to engage members in a virtual format to keep the YMF chapter connected. It was with much excitement that we began to plan a follow up to our very successful Sip N’ Paint Night from last year, very creatively named Sip N’ Paint Night Pt 2. Our artists gathered via Zoom on January 14th to prove that engineers are as artistically gifted as they are analytical. Armed with a blank canvas, some acrylic paint bottles, a large brush, a glass of wine, and several cotton swabs; we set to work on creating our magnum opus. We followed a YouTube video tutorial on how to paint a cherry blossom tree landscape. After much pausing and rewinding, we finished up our artwork and were very impressed with the results!
