Our Spring 2022 Workshop with Skip Lawrence has been cancelled!

Because of some workshop participants’ COVID related illnesses, recent exposures, and our  concern for everyone’s continued good health, we have come to the conclusion that cancellation of our in person Spring Workshop 2022 with Skip Lawrence is our only responsible option.

We are all disappointed but believe the best decision has been made.
On a positive note, Skip has agreed to take part in a virtual, ZOOM, demonstration on Thursday evening, May 19th, from 7 – 9 pm!!

William Skip Lawrence: Expressive Artist
“I love everything about painting. I love feeling the paint, seeing a rich color spread under my brush onto a surface and the play between colors coming together. I love watching my idea take form until a painting finally says “it” and I am surprised and delighted every time. I love sharing my art and knowing that someone is moved by it. 
I see no hierarchy among realism, abstraction, non-objective painting styles. I see only the relationship of colors, shapes, surface and line that either thrills or bores me. When these elements come together to communicate an artist’s intention to the viewer, to connect with someone, it is nothing short of wonderful.
