in the visual arts is one of the main
purposes of the Pence Gallery. Frequent
lectures given by the exhibiting
artist or curator are an important part of
each show. The Gallery also offer several drawing workshops for adults, provides
ArtSmart and KidsCreate programs for children, and
provides an Internship Program
with artist JOANNE ANDRESEN
This class is intended for artists who have had some experience with watercolor. Our emphasis will be on painting nature. Studying skies, trees, rocks and water, and how each appears in sun and shade and different weather conditions, will be part of our lessons. We will use photos and live subject matter as the inspiration for paintings. A friendly class environment makes class critiques helpful and stress free.

There is no “right” recipe to paint portraits. Artist Misuk Goltz will teach you to tackle portrait painting and capture the essence of the person you want to paint in watercolor. In this two-day online workshop, you will learn how to prepare reference materials and sketches, mix colors for skin tone, and create an interesting background to produce a complete portrait. Participants should have some experience with watercolor but no experience with portrait painting is needed.

|HEALING ARTS Workshop
with Art Therapists AMY VIDRA and JULIE KARP
Tuesdays, 6-7:30 PM | (FREE)
HEALING ARTS will be rescheduled.
The Pence Gallery Healing Arts Workshop uses art as a healing
language for those experiencing grief from the loss of a
family member or friend. Art-based interventions can improve a
person’s coping skills and their overall quality of life.
Creating art projects provides opportunities for discussion,
education, and connecting with peers in a safe and supportive
space. The art media utilized is carefully chosen to create an
outlet for grief, providing tangible ways of memorializing and
remembering, and helping to bridge the gap in expressing
difficult emotions. Participants must be 18 or older, and no
art experience is necessary.
This new program is generously sponsored by Bob and Joanne Andresen.
