Bring a couple of your own sketches or photographs to create original art, and Tony may have a few of his own to share. Winter’s beauty is always an inspiration for a beautiful image which you can reproduce to send a personal holiday card. Each day we will plan our subject with a focus on design.

We will finish each day with a  small group viewing to truly appreciate the variety and individual styles of each artist. Click here for the registration packet: Fog, Rain, & Winter
