Happy spring fellow artists, art lovers, colorers, and all…..
Lots of moving parts lately so trying to play catch up.
First the latest on workshops.
Saturday – March 19. Lynne Yancha returns for one of her lovely workshops. She is a wonderful instructor and her classes are always a fun bonding experience. The work that the attendees do always astounds us as they seem to make sure great strides. Love going in that class halfway thru to see where they are in their paintings. Classes are small – max 6- $60. 10 to 4 with a break for lunch. This Saturday we have two spots left. She will return in April and May so read down further for the dates.
Saturday- April 2 – 10-12
“Water-Doodle a Spring Card!”
May Day, Mother’s Day, and lots of Birthdays are coming.
You will be creating a floral themed card in this workshop with Jane Albin.
We start by learning a few new doodles, add some simple watercolor techniques, and end up with your own personal greeting card.
All materials are included. No experience necessary.
Maximum 10 students. Ages 15 and up. $40
Jane’s classes are always educational and inspiring!
****Last Monday night we hosted the Susquehanna Art League. Randy and Jane did quite an interesting presentation. We have decided to repeat it. This is a free event with loads of info, things to play with, a few freebies, and a discount. Woot- Woot. We call this the “Randy and Jane Show”. Come meet these artists, see what makes them tick, and learn what they find works well for them. We would like to know if you are coming if possible but feel free to come even if you haven’t let us know. When – Saturday – April 2 from 1:30 to 3 ish!!
Here is pic from the event-
Saturday April 30- Joann will return for round 2 of this ….Okay – have your ever watched Project Runway and wished you could sketch like the designers do? Well then, come join Joann Landis for her Fashion Design and Sketch workshop. Joann is also a professional artist and has a wonderful background in fashion. Usually she teaches locally with a 6 week class but we talked her into doing a workshop where you could see how to start in this interesting field. Knowing a little about how to draw fashion could help you with people in your paintings. 1-3 – cost $25 and you will need to purchase your art markers – which we have – should cost you just under $25. Joann said if you took the first one she would steer you to more advanced projects and the markers will be different this time. Not kidding – if you draw at all you will find some really good ideas in this class.
****Lynne will return for 4 more watercolor workshops -Friday April 8, Saturday April16, Friday May 6, and Saturday May14. These fill up quickly – small classes of 6 so check your calendars.
All if our classes must be paid for at the time of registration. We do this so that people are less likely to cancel and our artist instructors get paid for their time. If you must cancel then half goes to the instructor and the rest you may redeem in art supplies. It is the only way we have found that keeps people on track 🙂
The Lewisburg Arts Festival is April 23 this year. There will be the art show at the Packwood House, the photography show, a plein air event on Sunday and lots and lots of things going on. Here is the link to that for you to check out.
Click on applications or plein air for more info. This day is always so much fun at the shop!!
More puzzles and coloring books are showing up soon. What is hot? Lettering stencils, brush pens of any type- something going on in Pinterest that is driving these, watercolor anything, and of course colored pencils- really a bit tough to get the sets in but we are doing our best!!
That is it for now. Let us know if we can help in anyway. We are always happy to order things in for you.
Kathy and Team Brushstrokes- Deb, Laurie, Jane, Sylvia, Barbara, Katie, and of course Randy and George!!
