Working from the life model, this one week class will offer students the chance to develop their portrait drawing and oil painting skills.  Students can choose to do both or spend the week focusing on only one of the media offered.

The instructor will provide demonstrations and daily individual critiques. We will consider working methods aimed at increasing our skills of perceptual observation and manual application. Topics to be considered include drawing and painting issues such as achieving a likeness; human anatomy; composition; the dynamics and anatomy of light and shadow; color analysis and relationships; technical aspects of paint handling and artist's materials and more.

With Nicholas Raynolds, guest teaching artist at Gage Academy and the National Academy School of Fine Art and The Art Students League in New York.  Artists retain copyright to their respective works.

Bring the whole family to a wonderful free evening of Shakespeare performed in the outdoors. Written just after “Hamlet” was completed, “Twelfth Night” reveals a more mature Shakespeare, writing about miracles of reconciliation, of second chances and of redemption. Classic Shakespearean dramatic irony is paired with his trademark laugh-out-loud comedy plus a liberal dose of romance. Perennially popular, this play is Shakespeare at his best. Please dress warmly and bring a blanket. Chairs are provided at the San Juan venues. No tickets or reservations are needed. We are on a first-come-and-welcome-all basis.

Dates & Locations:  

July 9 - Doe Bay Resort & Retreat, Orcas Island
