This is a wonderful opportunity to watch two master artists demonstrate their techniques! AIS Master Camille Przewodek and AIS Signature Member James Richards will be giving a painting demo side by side on stage. Free and open to the public, however please register so we have a count.
Both are also teaching workshops on June 6th and 7th. As of 4/20 Camille's Thursday workshop is full but there is still room in her Friday workshop (outdoor figures in the landscape). James Richards' indoor landscape workshop still has a few spots available but they will go fast...for more information on the workshops and how to register follow this link:
