Upcoming Workshops

Sunburst Art Series: Abstracting the Landscape

An Experimental Approach to Plein-air Painting

Friday, March 22, 2024

10:00-3:00 p.m.

Join Holly Hungett for a day of exploration, discovery and thinking outside the box. Fun warm-up exercises in the classroom to get your creative juices flowing. Capture the essence of what you see!

You’ll create a mini-series (3 – 5 paintings) from your inspirations; eliminate fussy details; create color harmony; simplify a scene. All levels are welcome. Bring your own supplies and lunch. 

Painting mostly on location, Hungett draws inspiration from connecting to nature. Working small in watercolor, ink, or mixed media she captures the essential elements of her location. Holly’s interest lies in expressive line, harmonious colors, reducing the number of shapes, and moving deeper towards abstraction.

Your donation of $65 is appreciated.
Space is limited to 12.

Register HERE by March 15 or call our office at 805.736.6528.
