Art Workshops for 2011 in Three Rivers

The Arts Alliance of Three Rivers has launched a diverse workshop schedule for 2011. And, as the new President of the Arts Alliance and also, the workshop Chair, I invite Fresno artists, and art lovers, to make the beautiful drive to Three Rivers and join us! Take the back door scenic route and come through Seville and Woodlake following Ave 384, exiting Hwy 99 just south of Kingsburg. Three Rivers is about 90 minutes from Fresno, east of Visalia on Hwy 198.

We have three wonderful out of town artists coming to teach our workshops, as well as two local talented artists.
Each workshop has limited enrollment, so sign up early and don’t wait for the last minute.


Call me at 559-561-4671 for more information.
Registration forms can be found at the Arts Alliance website at http://artsthreerivers.org

Painterly Printmaking with Monotype

June 25-26, 2011 from 10-4 pm

Saint Anthony Retreat in Three Rivers
Taught by San Diego artist, Amber George
Details: http://artsthreerivers.org/workshops/george.html
Often considered the most spontaneous form of printmaking, monotype is a fun and experimental form of expression.  It is closely related to painting and is accessible to new and experienced artists alike. We will be using water based Akua Inks which can be printed without a press and clean up is easy with safe, non-toxic clean up methods.
