Looking for a different type of art workshop?

You are invited to Darla Bostick’s 5th Annual multi-media art workshop/retreat at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, NM.

Several rooms have been reserved 30 August- 5 Sept (including Labor Day weekend) for the event which includes digital photography, watercolors/acrylics, pencil, incorporating text and more. Surface materials will be explored using yupo, canvas, watercolor paper, tissue and more.

There is opportunity for plein air painting as well as the comfort of a group activity room with floor to ceiling vistas of unbelievable beauty.

For 7 days/6 nights you have permission to simply relax, enjoy and create. Your lodging and daily meals are included with your registration. The Georgia O’Keeffe Landscape Tour takes you to the very places where she painted the magnificent scenery offered by the area. Another field trip offered is to tour her home/studio in nearby Abiquiu. Spaces are very limited and filling. Bring your favorite media (or try something new) and join us!
Unreserved rooms will be released 27 July. Since this event overlaps Labor Day Weekend, it may be difficult to reclaim rooms after this date.

For more information: visit the website www.darlabostick.com The website shows how I interpret an image and shows the stages from the photograph to the finished piece.

Come and see for yourself why Georgia O’Keeffe loved Ghost Ranch!

Polaroid Images & Emulsion Transfers


Hello! Since I see that more people at VAL are doing photography, I thought i’d share this workshop. Last year I tried to sign up for it, but there weren’t enough students. No one is signed up yet, but maybe word just needs to spread.
— Kathy Keith

Polaroid Images & Emulsion Transfers
Instructor: Sheila Cunningham
These are offered through the Creative Arts Center of Dallas.

Students create one-of-a-kind artworks from their own slides or prints using these techniques. Basic transfer techniques and hand coloring options are covered. You may bring several 35mm slides or 4″x 6″ prints of your own or use those available in class. No darkroom experience necessary. Minimum enrollment is 5 students. Cost is $100 for members, $130 for non-members plus an additional $25 supply fee. Below is the list of 1-day classes with date, time and location. Click on the class link to register online.
