Upcoming Workshops

We may get a little sad as summer winds down, still it's fun to look forward to the Fall season.  So much richness of color!  And...upcoming colored pencil and watercolor pencil workshops.

Wadsworth Library - Geneseo, NY

Brighton Recreation Center - Rochester, NY

Pittsford Library - Pittsford, NY 

These workshops have already taken place.  See Instruction page for upcoming ones. 



A favorite summer attraction is the beach of course where these beautiful shells are found.  This seashell piece was rendered in colored pencil in a Chili workshop.  The artist, Tony, did a great job in achieving boldness, depth and detail in his work.  Nice, Tony! 


Nothing like ice cream in the summertime.  I think everyone had to go get an ice cream cone after completing this piece!  Pictured from left to right are Tony, Rhonda, Betty, Joyce, Marilyn and Gloria.  Great job everyone!


Kaye proudly shows off her beautiful work on this lilacs piece.  Lovely!
