Finish It - Studio Work or Plein Air in Any Medium   Kay Brathol-Hostvet

We all have those unfinished projects--paintings, collage, drawings. Whether you just need the time, new ideas, or fresh eyes to view your work, this workshop should help generate some completed projects. This loosely-structured workshop will include beginning and ending group critiques, handouts and "ideas" examples, and uninterrupted work time with as much or as little personal attention from the instructor as you request. Those taking Saturday's plein air workshop, or who have experience in painting outdoors, may choose to continue in plein air on the grounds of Whispering Woodlands. (Those with no or little experience in plein air should sign up for Saturday's plein air class instead.)   Sun, July 1, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.   $125/$5 materials

Relief Printmaking  Jackie Hefty

Most people are familiar with rubber stamps and the concept of being able to print multiple copies, often as cards or gift tags.  Are you ready to take this to the next level? Creating your own image and carving a block?  Let me show you how, learn the basic process and you will be on your way to making your personal greeting cards or larger format images. In this class you will have the opportunity to print both with and without a press, so you may easily continue at home. Appropriate for all levels. Sat / Sun  July 21 & 22, 1 - 4  $110/$15 materials
