Greetings to All,
I received this notice of a multi-media workshop from Suzanne Siegal, who is a good friend of the artist. It looks interesting if you're of a mind to broaden your artistic vision and to work in other media. If you're interested, let me know, and I can send you the PDF which contains the registration form and some images.

In this 3 day workshop artists explore abstract painting using layering, cold wax medium, tube
oils, pigment sticks, powdered pigments and a variety of implements. We will explore new ways
to create textures, color fields and mark making. Utilizing various tools and techniques we will
“push the limits” of our mediums and welcome the surprises along the way deciding what works
and what does not. This workshop is well suited for those who have had some prior painting
experience and who enjoy the sharing, flexibility & happenstance of a group environment! The
workshop focuses on the process itself – on the possibilities of that process and how it can be
incorporated in your individual artistic practice. Once comfortable with the basic techniques we
begin discussing form and content, deliberate and accidental mark making and starting points.
There are technique demonstrations combined with student experimentation, group discussions
and printed resources.
