Guided instruction to make your drawing and painting skills stronger! Let’s pay special attention to design and composition, and then we can work together to improve our technical skills, focusing on values, color choices, edge treatments, and personal style to arrive at a suitable degree of finish.
This workshop is meant to be a hands-on event, tailored to the specific needs of each artist. Participants who register early and email Cheryl before July 20 will receive a special program of study geared specifically to their skill level and area of focus. This will be like having a private lesson in a group setting!

Plan on spending lunch in the classroom on Sunday so you don’t miss the special “Round-Robin” painting experience!
