Lunch at the workshop last year!

MANAKINTOWNE WORKSHOP AT HUGUENOT SPRINGS

Saturday, June 3, 9:30 AM – 3:30 PM 
$115
After being rained out for the first time ever, this year’s spring workshop has been rescheduled as follows. It isn’t too late to sign up…but hurry!

Enjoy a day in the country working en plein air at historic Huguenot Springs in Powhatan, the sister property of Manakintowne Farm. The site offers beautiful old shade trees and a mature garden filled with peonies and irises. This year in addition to our oil pastel workshop, we are happy to have visiting artist Rudi Winebrenner (a.k.a. Maruta Racenis) joining us for a watercolor workshop. Our day includes a break for Jo’s gourmet farm lunch and leisurely conversation. Workshop descriptions follow; please choose either oil pastel or watercolor at sign up. Experienced students may work in other media (such as oils, acrylic, or soft pastel) as well.

Oil Pastel: Some previous drawing experience is helpful, but experience with oil pastel is not required. All drawing supplies are provided (included in tuition), making this a good opportunity to try out a new medium. Those continuing with oil pastel are welcome to bring their own supplies. For those just beginning in oil pastel, the day begins with a short introduction and demo while continuing students can pick a site and begin working. Individual instruction will be given to all throughout the day.

Watercolor: Open to experienced watercolor students only. Work with watercolor free and loose to capture the beauty of Jo’s spring garden under the guidance of our visiting artist, Rudi Winebrenner. Rudi has taught at the VMFA Studio School, and you probably know her as the former owner of Main Art, our favorite (and sorely missed!) local source for art supplies. You can have a look at her work here: www.marutaracenis.com.

Tuition for the day is $115. At sign-up, please specify which medium you want to work with. Please sign up early as space is limited. More information will be sent upon registration.

For sign up or questions contact me here (or any other way you know how to reach me!).
