Gift Yourself an In-Person Workshop!

If workshops are not your thing, skip to the end of this post for the little fun stuff including a save-the-date to draw together on Instalive. But if they are, I want to tell you about two in-person, fully immersive workshops I am super-excited to be a part of! They’re both in 2022, and are very different workshops, so read on to see what works for you. (also, feel free to ask questions about them if you have any!)

An Art Retreat with Suhita Shirodkar, Uma Kelkar and Nina Khashchina

Feb 11-13, 2022

This 2-day immersive workshop in California is based on mark-making, textures and printmaking. We will spend all weekend experimenting with different techniques brought to you by your three instructors and will learn techniques you can incorporate back into your practice, be that sketchbooking, plein air painting, urban sketching or a studio practice.

Here’s a short blurb, but really you’re going to want to read more details at the link below and sign up soon. We announced this one to our mailing lists first, so it’s filling up nicely…

Are you ready to get away on a creative break without getting too far away? Ready to put to paper that bottled up creativity and make art with like-minded people?  We have just the answer for you. Join Uma Kelkar, Suhita Shirodkar and Nina Khashchina on a creative all-inclusive weekend:  instruction, supplies, lodging and food are all included when you join us on this retreat.
