Fall Workshop at Hilton Head Island

Speaking of the beach.... registration is now open for my workshop at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina - the dates are October 29 - November 2, 2012.  It is the best time of the year to be in Hilton Head, off-season when the weather is spectacular, the crowds are few and the hotel/rental rates are low.

The studio space in the Arts Center is huge, it is our space the entire week, plenty of tables, easels and room to move around with lots of natural light.

The gist of the workshop will be about capturing the moment - on the beaches, boardwalks, marinas, coastal landscapes, nearby Savannah - I guide my students in the process of painting from photos, including editing the images on Photoshop then using oils in an efficient, colorful, fun process.

If you are interested in signing up, please call Vince Fazio, the arts director of the Sedona Arts Center  - contact info is on the right hand column of this blog or on this link.   As of today, there are 7 openings. Vince also assists me at the workshop - helping students with editing and printing the images on paper.

I'd love to have you join me - I work hard to make sure it's worth it.

~ Gratefully,  Karin J

Would dearly love to come. :) Will have to save my pennies. I am sure it is one hundrend percent worth it. I've never painted with oils and I can't think of a better way to start than with you. :)

It IS worth it! I just finished the workshop with Karen in S.F. She is the most generous teacher; telling you anything and everything she knows. Watching her paint is fantastic. Vince does,"Assist." He prints your photos on fine photo paper which will spoil you forever. I came home jazzed and excited. It will take me 6mths to a year to fully incorporate everything I learned, so the workshop is still helping me so much. GO if you can! You will be happy you did.

HHI is a great space and Vince is one of the best folks I have met. Extremely helpful and knowledgeable with art, photoshop and yes printing everything on big photo paper:) Make it happen- life changing and fascinating to watch Karin paint- Loved every minute!!
