Paint, Live, and Eat! That should be the motto for this workshop which has become an over two decade tradition in Virginia City. Here we expand our boundaries as artists as we paint in the Victorian studio of this venerable building. Participating artists not only take the workshop but stay in the beautifully restored rooms of the 1870’s era brick building.
This year we will concentrate on abstract forms and shapes found in the natural and structured world of Virginia City. There is a wealth of inspiration in and around ST Mary’s and Virginia City.
Creativity is the word for this class.
Tuition and lodging are included in the cost: $650. Spouses and partners are welcome. $45. per night extra
For those commuting or staying elsewhere Tuition only/ No Lodging $425.
