Green Apple, 12x12, Rebecca's apple exercise
We had a great time at the Casa Monica Hotel painting papers and collaging in a three-day workshop through the Grand Bohemian Gallery in St. Augustine, FL recently. I have posted an album of the apple exercise on my facebook fan page where you can also see several great photos of student paper painting.
The Casa Monica Hotel's award winning 95 Cordova Restaurant catered lunch every day, and the food was excellent (lunch is included in the workshop fee!) Many of the students complimented the workshop hostess, Vanessa Hall, for coordinating such a successful weekend. On Friday, we painted papers out by the pool deck and enjoyed our lunch in the artistic setting of the restaurant. Saturday and Sunday we worked in the hotel's Alcazar room which overlooks the pool. We spent the day collaging and enjoying coffee and lunch catered in the room. The weather was so nice on Saturday that we took our lunch out by the pool.
Grand Bohemian Gallery represents my work in six locations nationwide. We have done workshops together in Asheville, NC and St. Augustine, FL. I can honestly say that Vanessa puts on a first class weekend for the students and myself. I always have a featured show opening on Friday night and if students stay in the hotel, they can take advantage of a reduced room rate.
Keep your eyes open for future workshops with the Grand Bohemian!
