Intro to Plein Air Workshop
If you have never painted from life before and it looks like fun or have tried but didn’t have a great experience the first time out, this one day workshop will show you step by step how to get over the anxiety of starting, and get down to the enjoyment of painting outdoors. You will see how easy it is to set up in the field comfortably with the right equipment, how to quickly select a spot to paint, prepare the surface, and begin. In just a short time, you will have captured the essence of what your senses were revealing to you. A materials list is posted for you to begin. Some materials and easels will be provided. Pack a lunch or enjoy one of the many restaurants in the village. Join me in Skippack for a fun Intro to Plein Air Painting Workshop!

Redware Sgraffito Plate Workshop
This workshop will focus on the sgraffito technique used by 18th and 19th century Pennsylvania German potters to make expressive designs in their folk-art pottery. Sgraffito means to “scratch” and workshop participants will draw and scratch a design on a redware plate. Participants can choose a traditional Pennsylvania German design or create their own! Students will have the option to sgraffito 7” or 10″ redware plates coated with white clay slip; limit of 3 plates as time permits. All the sgraffito tools and books for ideas are provided or bring your own. After the workshop, the plates will be dried, glazed, and fired - this takes about 4 weeks.
