    This three-day workshop will address the common fear of drawing hands and feet. The gesture of the entire figure can begin and end with the hands and feet. We will address how to methodically build-up foundational shapes, and address the complex, abstract shape of the subject, then tonally describe the forms within the confines of the contour. The focus is on patience, craft, observation, and understanding of drawing principles. Students at all levels are welcome.


    Please sign up early;class size is limited to 12 students.

    Join encaustic artist, Carolyn Berry, in this fun and experimental workshop where the sky is the limit! Encaustic wax is a versatile medium made from beeswax, damar resin and powdered pigments that can be used for traditional painting techniques as well as a way to add texture, layer and join mixed media materials together.  We will explore experimental techniques of painting, drawing, collage, stenciling, photo transfer, wax fusing and surface manipulation. Be inspired to create artwork with a unique surface using melted wax and pigments. Using magazine images, photo images and found collage materials students will achieve successful and personal imagery in this creative medium. No previous art experience is necessary only an adventurous spirit.


    Please sign up early; class size is limited.

    Join artist and illustrator, Pam Barcita as she guides students through the process of creating a spectacular piece in the format of a single page triptych. The workshop will include several techniques to create an underwater scene with waterlilies and swimming koi fish. More advanced students are welcome to select their own subject matter. Pam will demonstrate the application of of each technique as she works toward the completion of the faux triptych created on a single sheet of watercolor paper. Beginning with sketching the image with pencil and applying the masking fluid that acts as a resist, Pam will move on to the stage of wetting the paper and pouring, blowing and manipulating the wet paint. Students will also be introduced to the use of salt, sanding watercolor pencils and negative painting. The finishing stages will include unmaking and working with whites and edges. The results are sure to be beautiful and students will leave with a wealth of new knowledge of how to use different techniques successfully. 


    Please sign up early; class size is limited to 12 students.

    This workshop is designed to move artists forward in their painting journey. Students will be encouraged to stretch and express themselves in a new way, completing one fresh, all prima painting in each of the four days. We will be working from still life set ups of luscious, exotic florals, encouraging spontaneity that is energizing and fun! Bold, direct painting, emphasizing form and value shifts and directional light will be the focus. Cynthia will start each day with a demonstration focusing on a different topic or technique (light, composition, brushwork). The rest of the instruction will be individual throughout each day. A positive group review of students’ work will wind up the workshop with a wonderful display of progress made by everyone. Some painting experience is helpful.


    Please sign up early; class size is limited to 12 students.
