August Workshops

All of the following Workshops will be held out of doors at Zilke Vegetable Farm in Milan, Michigan during their Sunflower Festival. We will be set up under a big tent with access to parking and porta-potties. Materials, tools, lunch, and bottled water will be provided. Class size is limited to allow for individual instruction at all levels. Lunch will be selected from a limited menu upon arrival. A vegetarian option will be available. Feel free to bring your own snacks and added beverages to keep yourself hydrated and comfortable. Advance payment is required at the time of registration.

Knife Painting for Beginners & Beyond
Monday, August 8, 2022
10 am - 4 pm
We will work from still-life objects that are seasonally inspired. Think flowers (not just sunflowers), market fresh fruit, veggies, and more. This will provide options to accommodate the skill level of all painters. You don't have to paint the entire display but rather the parts that speak to you. Painting from life provides the greatest and most expedient growth in skill as drawing and painting are dependent on "seeing" and it is so much better to see your subject in true life, especially when learning.
