New Summer Collage Workshop!

White house is the instructors quarters, red barn is where the class will be held

The folks at Yates County Art Center in Penn Yan, NY have asked me to come up to the finger lakes region and teach my Paper Paintings Collage Workshop in July this year. 

Artists are innately drawn to the natural beauty of the Finger Lakes region. It is an area that stimulates creativity and has led to the creation of thousands of images of sailboats and sunshine, clusters of grapes hanging on gnarled vines, and waterfalls and gorges that cut through a patchwork quilt of farmlands and vineyards. No, thanks to a generous donation to the Yates County Arts Center from the estate of Dr. Annie Smith, artists will have an additional opportunity to fully experience the inspirational impact of the Finger Lakes.

This workshop is open to the public, Kris at the center said. "We are absolutely open to anyone who wants to come – we love visitors from other areas and it’s a GREAT region to visit….lots of good wine, beautiful lakes, rolling hills etc.  Lots of Mennonite farmers and craftsmen so buggies are a common sight. "

Come out and tear paper with me, take an extra day or two to enjoy some of the wineries in the region.  Check out the Keuka Lake Wine Trail.  and the Penn Yan Wineries and Vineyards Travel Guide.
