It's a short newsletter this issue . . . one announcement
and information about two upcoming workshops at my studio in Newcastle,
Scratchboard in Vancouver, BC
Exhibit & Workshops
honored to have three works accepted into the Second Annual Juried Exhibition of the International Society of Scratchboard Artists (ISSA). The
opening reception of the exhibit is June 7th and the show runs
through June 23rd. I shipped my drawings last week and they're
now at the Federation of Canadian Artists Gallery on Granville
Island in Vancouver, British Columbia.
If you're going to be
anywhere near Vancouver in June, you must check
out this exhibition. To see an entire show of scratchboard
works is a treat not to be missed. The detail of scratchboard
drawings has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated!
There will also be workshops on June 8th & 9th.
A number of ISSA members (including myself) will be giving demos of various
scratchboard techniques. I'm proud to say I was awarded Signature
status (SSA) in the Society
last year and thrilled to be able to present a demo and be part
of this wonderful group of highly skilled and talented artists!

on Yupo Workshop
July 27th in Newcastle CA
10am - 3:30pm
A one day, five
hour workshop focusing on watercolor on Yupo techniques. Yupo
is a synthetic paper that offers a unique working surface which
is much different than traditional watercolor paper. I favor
animal subjects painted in bright colors, but this technique
can be used for any subject and color palette. Class
size limited to 10 students. $60, Yupo provided. Pre-payment required. Click here for details, materials list and to sign up.
