    Member Jan Pini will present "Norman Rockwell". She says, "I chose Norman Rockwell because I like his realistic style and the way he was able to capture everyday life in his illustrations. We visited the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, and saw many of his paintings up close. We also learned how he positioned his models to get the effect he was looking for."
