NOTES ON THE WORKSHOP:
Sunday arrival is advised with Fri afternoon or Sat departure? (It depends on your desire to hike and explore more…well worth staying the extra day or two).
Monday 9:00 AM, we will gather at Bogdanove Cottage, up on Horn Hill.
First day, get acquainted…..go over materials….and jump into painting!
Each morning we will meet at the specified painting location for a demo/lecture, then on to create individual works of art; possibly visit a working artist’s studio/gallery, closing our day with a critique. We will focus on principles of painting, with the village/cliffs/ocean, etc. for inspiration. There are 17 miles of hiking trails, for the energetic, so bring good footwear!
This will be an experience enriching for the mind, body and soul! You’re welcomed to join me!
The Workshop supply list is available via my web site.
Call with materials questions.
To contact me after July 6, leave a message with Shining Sails B&B, the rental agent. See you there!
