  2011 workshop updates

In the past few months I've been publicizing my 2011 Oil and Wax Workshops, updating the information on my website, sending online newsletters and posting on Facebook and the Oil and Wax website. The artists who are helping me to organize classes in several locations have also been wonderful at getting the word out. The response has been great--some classes are now full and others nearly so. It seems a good time to update those of you who may be interested as to where there are still openings, and also to fill you in on new offerings this year, and a little background about the various classes and locations.

First, an update on my Studio Workshops, which are held at my home in Osseo, Wisconsin: I have two on the calendar this spring, and both are filled. But if you were hoping to come to one of these studio classes this year, please note that I may add another session later in the year. Also, I'm planning to clear out more room in my studio work area, and when this is accomplished I'll have room for up to 6 students instead of the current 4. If you would like to be on a waiting list (in the event that I get this done in time for the May class) please let me know. This will be a busy spring and re-organizing will be a major project, but I will try to accommodate you.

April Workshops in the Carolinas: I am teaching a Level Two class in Asheville, NC at River's Edge Studio, April 8-10. The Level Two class is a new class this year, and limited to those who have already had my regular, introductory class in the past, or one taught by Cindy Taylor Walton or by Janice Mason Steeves. Both of these excellent artists have taken my class in the past, worked intensively with cold wax and now teach their own workshops in cold wax medium. Taking the knowledge of techniques, tools and materials to a more advanced level should make for an exciting and rewarding three days. I'm also looking forward to my first visit to Asheville, a city widely recognized for its vibrant art scene.

The other workshop in the Carolinas (a regular intro class, open to all) will be held April 15-17 in Beaufort, SC. There are two spots still open for this class, which I scheduled at the urging of my former junior high art teacher, a wonderful woman who influenced my career choice and who moved to Beaufort after retirement. She'll be taking the workshop...isn't that a sweet circle? Beaufort is a nice coastal town... and after the winter we've had in Wisconsin, I'm really looking forward to seeing spring in both of these Carolina locations.

June in the Quad Cities: I'll be teaching at Bucktown Center for the Arts in Davenport, Iowa, June 2-4. Enrollment is still open, with seven spots vacant at last count. What better way to kick start a summer of painting? The Quad Cities are an excellent central location for anyone desiring an Oil and Wax Workshop in the Midwest, and Davenport itself is an interesting historic city on the Mississippi River.

July in Telluride, Colorado: This workshop, which will be held at the Ah Haa School for the Arts from July 25-28, is an opportunity to experience a longer workshop than I usually teach--four days instead of three. I am excited by the possibilities of more in-depth exploration of the media. Telluride is also one of the most spectacularly beautiful places I have seen in the US, a small, very friendly town surrounded by impressive mountain vistas. If you come, it would be smart to schedule and extra day or two just to hike and enjoy the surroundings. One more reason to choose this workshop: I am represented by Telluride Gallery of Fine Art and chances are good that there will be examples of my work on view there, which will give me a way to talk about the process with finished work on hand.

Late Summer/Fall: the Level Two class scheduled for Shake Rag Alley in Mineral Point, Wisconsin in August has filled, but a second session has been added for the same location in October (10/21-23.) There are plenty of openings in that class, and again if you have studied with either Janice Mason Steeves, Cindy Taylor Walton or myself, you are welcome to attend.

Registration information for all introductory level classes may be found on my website workshop page. For Level Two Workshops or with any questions at all, please email me at crowellart@yahoo.com. Thanks, and I hope that if you are looking for an Oil and Wax Workshop in 2011, one of these classes will fit your calendar and travel plans.
