There Brian was a graphic cartoonist and creator of their famous monster masks and costumes


 Philip Carlton , an accomplished plein air painter was our speaker. Using his oil painting skills, he demonstrated beginning,

filling out and perfecting a mountain landscape with golden backlit fall trees. He entertained us with amusing stories of a big wind blowing over his easel and snapping the long handles of his brushes, leaving a wet slithering painting along the side of his car. Plein air painting has it pitfalls!

Mosaic Demonstration

We had a truly memorable three day workshop with Connie Hendrix! It was memorable in that we learned a lot  that we’ll always remember, and we had an enjoyable  friendly creative time together. We watched on the last day as this striking waterfall painting grew in front of our eyes, with the use of two colors, a paint brush, and a razor blade. Amazing.
