Dawn Emerson Pastel Workshop
January 30, 31 and February 1, 2017
$400 (includes lunch daily)
This workshop will focus on expressive design and mark-making with pastel. Dawn will guide the class through sequential exercises that will help each person rediscover and expand their own mark-making language. Through a unique exploration of design and composition, this class will help you see options for composition you didn't know existed! Process rather than product will be emphasized as participants learn to combine design knowledge with mark-making innovation to create unique imagery.   All levels; any subject matter (animals, people, landscape, still life, abstracts...) is suitable for this class.

Saturday, February 18, 2017
$75 (includes lunch)

"Love Those Puppy-dog Eyes?"  Capture your pet (whatever it may be) in a lasting oil or acrylic painting with step-by-step instructions from nationally recognized artist, Gina Strumpf.

Lyn Asselta Pastel Workshop
"Creative Color in the Landscape"
September 11-13, 2017
$400 (includes lunch daily)
This 3-day workshop will take you briefly through some basic work with color and then move into more creative uses of color in the landscape. We’ll focus on ways that color can help you be more expressive with your paintings and you’ll have the opportunity to explore color as an emotional element in your work. The goal of this class is not only to help you take your paintings from the everyday to the extraordinary, but to help you achieve a more fearless, intuitive approach to color. If you feel you are too timid with color, this class is definitely for you!!

Also Coming in 2017!
