|CLINIC: Model Railroading as Art|
|DAY: Saturday||TIME: 1:00-2:00p
|DESCRIPTION: In addition to the enjoyment we get from building and operating our layouts, we can also do so through the simple act of viewing them. In other words, thinking of them as we would a piece of art. If we do so, then the same principles used in the art world can be applied. The clinic covers subjects such as color treatment, scene composition, backdrops, and photographic presentation.
