I just happened to run across the site of the La Connor, WA Art Workshops, here: http://www.laconnerartworkshops.com/schedule2007.html

I happened to notice that WC's own Kitty Wallis will be offering a workshop on June 18-22, Plein Air Color Intensive in Pastels - http://www.laconnerartworkshops.com/classes/wallis.html

The La Connor Art Workshops have a lot of focus on pastel artists, and later workshops will be offered by other prominent pastel artists, such as Biolchini, Urania Tarbet, Theresa Saia, Deborah Paris, Richard McKinley and Dawn Emerson. Terry Ludwig, another WC sponsor, will offer a workshop in 2008.

Just thought this might be of interest...

I just came back from visiting relatives in the area (I used to live there, and miss it terribly). I noticed the list of workshops and am green with envy. Wish I could have stayed longer. Anyone who can, do go. The workshops are excellent.

And don't miss the Museum of NW Art, which is outstanding, or the LaConner Quilt Museum, which is also wonderful and a good inspiration for pastel artists too. (And it is in a wonderful old mansion that was renovated and furnished through a community effort.). There are a lot of terrific artists who live in the area, and a lot more who are in the galleries there. Great place to be.
