WORKSHOPS

August 4th Workshop: "Drawing Class” with John McFarland
All levels are welcome! We will focus on composition and structure, and perhaps a few surprises. Please bring two to three images of what you would like to draw. The remaining materials will be provided for a $10 fee by the artist. Leave your worries at the door, we'll have fun!

Class size is limited to 10 participants. Please register 3 days ahead of the workshop, walk-ins welcome if class size allows. Material fees will be paid directly to the instructor, class fee paid to MAL. Please bring your own lunch. If you have questions email MAL Workshop Chair, Sarah S. Thompson at [email protected].

September 1st Workshop: "Collage with Watercolors” with Barbara McFarland
I'll be demonstrating staining papers with acrylics for a collage background. Then we will paint our subject on top using watercolors with a direct method. Acrylic paints also could be used at this point, but you'll see why using watercolors is more forgiving. I will supply a collaged substrate and fixative spray for a $10 material fee.

Materials:

  • Watercolors & Palette
  • Brushes
  • Water container
  • A simple subject idea (I will have some available)
  • Tissue box or Paper Towels

Class is limited to 12 students. Please register 3 days ahead of the workshop, walk-ins welcome if class size allows. Material fees will be directly to the instructor, class fees paid to MAL. Please bring your own lunch. If you have questions email MAL Workshop Chair, Sarah S. Thompson at [email protected].
