The Pacific Northwest


There will be new destinations in the Pacific Northwest starting next spring, 2011. Giving two workshops in Anacortes last Summer gave me the opportunity to discover this beautiful region and find great settings for workshops.

I will have the details about those workshops early in the year. I will send you all a reminder so you can check out the details when available.

Come and join us in Summer Lake for a 3 day workshop. During these 3 days, we will record the beauty and the serenity of the Oregon high desert. Over 250 species of birds visit the wildlife refuge, right across from the lodge! You can count on breathtaking landscapes, history, and wildlife to record in your sketchbook!

ACCOMMODATION: Lodge at Summer Lake

COST: $475 includes: 3 day workshop, double-occupancy room (single rooms or cabins available with a supplement); daily breakfasts, dinners and packed lunches. Entry fees to the summer Lake Hot Springs and restaurant tips will be at your expense.

Note: Non-participants will pay $100 less than “regular”participants, but will still have to pay the $100 deposit.

You should think of arriving at the lodge on Sunday Sept 19, so we will have 3 full day workshop. You will be responsible for arranging your lodging for the extra night and breakfast.
