June Workshops

Learn and create fabulous works of art together!

Please join us in June for multiple 5 - day workshops offered by Jean Pederson, CSPWC, AWS and Bruce Handford, TWSA MS, NWS. There are still spaces available in two of the workshops offered.

Jean Pederson’s first week is sold out, but there are spaces available in the second week June 12-16. Jean will focus on Painting Portraitures and Wet-glazing of Florals, showing us how to combine both in your paintings. Jean’s wet on wet process is breath taking, and this is the Canadian artists’ first time teaching in this area of the US. Please visit: jeanpederson.com

Bruce Handford (June 5-9) will focus on Light and Shadow in Rural Scapes and Cityscapes. Bruce hails from Virginia, and he rarely does workshops. We are fortunate he has consented to come and teach his stunning ’light touch’ style. Bruce paints spontaneously with fresh and vivid colors, all levels of students would greatly benefit from these workshops. To see numerous examples of his work, please visit: mcbridegallery.com/handford.html

The workshops are held in bright, spacious and comfortable rooms of both the Kenosha Public Museum and the adjacent Civil War Museum. Both facilities are equipped with overhead mirrors for the artists’ demos. The limited number of students guarantees each participant a generous and secure workplace and personal attention from our esteemed instructors. Delicious catered meals are provided each day. A guided tour of the exhibit by your instructor will be included. Favorite restaurants within walking distance of the museums and the Wyndham Gardens Harborside, where nearly all the artists and the instructors will be staying, become the gathering places for evenings of conversation over dinner.

If you have any questions regarding attending one of the workshops, please email me at wigolfgirl90@yahoo.com or call me 262-484-1261. I look forward to seeing your name on the class roster.
