Adult Art Workshops

We offer beginning and experienced artists the opportunity to create art in a variety of workshops designed to entertain and educate interested participants. From weekend-long art classes with award-winning, professional artists to evening Art & Wine experiences with our Education Coordinator, these exciting art activities have something for everyone interested in a hands-on art adventure for all skill sets.

Joy of Color with Gretchen Lopez

This three-day class will be a must for students who have had some experience with oil or acrylic painting in Gretchen’s previous classes, or with other art instructors. Students at all levels are invited, but there will be a special emphasis on the topics of color and color mixing, technique, and composition. This course is also perfect for the beginning student or experienced painter who wishes to expand their skills. Students will work from a still life the first day, then from photo reference on the following days, but are welcome to bring their own reference material.
