Sally will provide essential painting instruction as well as personal mentoring. The workshop will be open to painters of all mediums. Demonstrations will be in pastel and watercolor with a focus on capturing beautiful color and light. The relaxed structure of this seven-day artists workshop will include time for both individual critiques and group discussions. Personal mentoring will help you explore ideas and goals for your work. Morning and afternoon painting sessions will allow opportunities for lunch and personal time. Non-painting companions are welcome and there will be much for them to see and do while artists paint.
