    Please select the workshops you would like to attend from the following choices. Artists are not required to register for the festival in order to register for a workshop.
  • How to ensure your painting is seen in the best light by festival judges and most importantly your patrons.
  • Paintings of a landscape that flows into the sky have long inspired people. Watercolor is unique because of its transparency and luminosity. The pigments used in watercolor are more delicate in many ways, let’s explore the wonder of watercolor together. Student should bring the following supplies: 4 sheets of 140lb 11 1/2 X 15 paper which would be one full sheet quartered, brushes, paints, water container, and board.
  • From bland to beautiful, this workshop gives keys to finding or creating drama in plein air landscapes. Learn to build strong compositions with values, edges and detail – and creative approaches to block-ins and brushwork. Whether you are new to painting, or you’ve been painting for years, this workshop has something for everyone. For acrylic and oil painters, the day begins with a short teaching and demonstration, then the participants work on their own painting with plenty of one-on-one instruction.
