Have we got an AWESOME workshop coming up in March -- Pastels with Peters! We’ll usher out this snowy weather and start your spring off with some pastel color techniques. The workshop is taught by accomplished pastel artist, Denice Peters, MAPS. Denice has 25 years experience dedicated solely to pastels. Read her attached bio for all of her amazing accomplishments.
Also attached is the workshop flyer and registration form. This workshop is open to all current 2020 Iowa Artists, not just Region 5 artists, and is FREE! Non-members/out-of-state artists may also attend for a fee of $25.00. For those registering for this soon-to-fill-up workshop (capped at 20 participants), please completely fill out the attached registration form and send it in today. Registration deadline is March 15th. Don’t miss your chance to learn pastels, have tons of fun, and network with other artists!
The venue, Hy-Vee Mills Civic Club Room, is centrally located in West Des Moines, Iowa, and easily accessible at the I-35 and Civic Mills Parkway exit. This spacious room with excellent lighting will make for a pleasurable learning experience and has handicap accessibility (elevator by the bakery – go in main store doors) or easy direct access via stairs when using the outside dedicated Market Grille door. Restrooms are conveniently located outside the club room. You can bring your own sack lunch or go down to the main store to purchase lunch from their Chinese, Hibachi, Mia Pia, salad bar, deli or Starbucks areas and bring back up to the club room. There will be tables set up for tabletop easels, or space for you to bring your stand-alone easel.
