Katherine Nelson's September 14-16, 2015 Artist Workshop: Discovering the Dramatic Landscape on Beautiful Whidbey Island, Washington. ALL drawing levels welcome.

Join me for an exciting and inspiring THREE day drawing workshop. Develop a new direction in your drawings while exploring the dramatic, fluid, and textural world of charcoal AND graphite through the beautiful landscape on world famous Whidbey Island. All art levels are welcome to attend this workshop.  Whether you are just starting out in drawing or have been working in charcoal or another medium for some time, you will have the opportunity to grow artistically in the fascinating and forgiving medium of charcoal. Artist demos, discussions, plenty of drawing exploration, building strong compositions, and group critique time provided every day.   September 14-16, 2015. The workshop runs from 9am-4pm daily with a lunch on your own during break time. Tuition $395. A detailed description of objectives and the link for registration for my workshop can be found at The Pacific Northwest Art School.

Enjoy paradise on Whidbey Island on your free time after class. Grab your sketchbook, camera, and workshop friends to explore a bit on your own time.  Coupeville and surrounding areas offer world class accommodations, restaurants, galleries, land and sea activities. Camping also an option on this island. Sample some of the famed Penn Cove mussels. Land, sea, and inspiration! Bring a group!
