    Join artist, John Meister, for a two-day workshop on marketing yourself and your art. This workshop is designed specifically for artists and will approach the topics from that perspective. 

    We will cover topics related to presentation, networking and marketing. We will discuss ways that you can become a positive advocate for your artwork and effective ways to communicate that to others and get results. 

    Whether your goal is to expand your connections to the art community, find students, or sell more art, this course will help you form a plan and implement it. The second half of the class will be geared more toward what you produce, how you present it, and how to document it. 

    We will discuss archiving your art, various options to sell your art, constructive communication with potential buyers that can help close the deal, and how you can turn a buyer into a collector. We will also learn about and demystify all of the technical jargon associated with digital images required for entering your work in shows, purchasing advertising, etc. 

    Effective marketing can help you sell more of your work and it increases the perceived value of the arts in our area! Whether or not you are interested in moving your own art, you can be a constructive influence in our greater art community! 

    Students should bring note taking materials and any printed material related to your career as an artist. 

    Please sign up early; class size is limited.

    Join Ming Franz for Splash Color workshop, starting from black and white splash to marbling splash to crinkling and abstract splash. Splash using acrylic on canvas and woodpanel is Ming’s newest approach to splash color abstract painting. 

    The foundation of this process is based on principles originating in Tang Dynasty China with a technique known as Po Mo. Essentially the artist freely “splashes” liquid color onto stacks of dampened sheets of mulberry paper. 

    After the wet sheets are left to dry for several hours, they are separated so the real magic can begin: discovering if the resulting dried sheets are abstracts able to stand on their own, or if they can be enhanced with more paint, whatever the imagination sees in the heart of the work. 

    A $45 materials fee should be paid directly to the instructor on the first day of class. 

    Please see the materials list for additional supplies. Please sign up early; class size is limited.

    Great artists of the past, Manet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Mondrian, Dine, to name a few, have turned to the flower for some of their most expressive work. 

    Successful flower painting requires a complete knowledge of the principles and language of fine art. Cynthia will begin each day with a demonstration and lecture, so the student will gain a better understanding of these principles, sharing her tips and techniques. These principles and techniques include composition, transparent lay-in, light and temperature, color harmony, space and edges. 

    During the intensive workshop, students can work on smaller canvases to closely examine the characteristic shapes and forms of each flowers or, they can work on a more complex contemporary floral still life. 

    Included in this class are flowers and, especially, colors related to spring - Tulips, Lilies, Daffodils, Pansies, etc. 

    Class size is limited to 12 students so that each participant receives one-on-one instruction. Flowers will be provided.
