Dakota Art Center
Introduction to Pastels March 16/17 & 23/24 (2 weekends - half days)
A comprehensive "introduction" to the pastel medium that focuses on the important fundamentals. A series of "pastel stroke exercises" on Day 1, will launch you into a hands-on learning experience that has proven to quickly advance your skills with all elements of pastel application. You will be painting ahead of the curve and learning to create better informed and more accomplished landscape paintings by the last day. Even experienced and advanced level pastel artists have said "I wish I had taken this workshop before I tried all the others." Testimonials are available through Dakota. Limited to 14 artists. This annual workshop fills very quickly. Details on Dakota web site or call: 1-888-345-0067 to register.
Dakota Art Center
Introduction to Plein Air Pastels July 19-21 (3 days)
We all work indoors on Day 1 at Dakota in preparation to get outdoors, on-site and experience "plein air" painting at selected sites around the fabled Skagit Valley. An abbreviated "pastel stroke exercise" lesson is done on Day 1, accompanied by 3 small landscape studies from instructor supplied reference photos. These will set the stage for learning to quickly edit the complicated subject matter that nature hands to us . . . and paint larger pieces outdoors, with complete confidence and new skills.

Croatia! - On the Island of Korcula - September 18-27
Join Steve and our guide/workshop coordinator, Lynda Milina for an unforgettable 10 days in sunny Croatia. Paint, Learn, eat! This combines exotic travel and touring, with art done at some of the most beautiful painting sites in Europe. Medieval cities (Dubrovnik, Korcula) are just a part of the land and seascapes we will encounter. There are also small seaside villages that abound with colorful old wooden boats and even more colorful people. Steve provides daily live demos and all day assistance at easels for the artists. Non-artist Spouses/traveling companions also welcome at a slightly reduced rate. We all stay at a lovely bed and breakfast accommodation on Korcula Island, with the most fantastic nightly dinners prepared by our hosts, Silvana and Renci Lovric.
