Laura Nelson Painting Workshops

Laura Nelson Painting Workshops

“After many requests, I am putting out some tentative dates for painting workshops in my home studio.
They are full, one, or two day workshops which include all materials ( paints, brushes, canvas, easels, tables, palettes etc.) plus nibblies and a happy hour drink. 9:30 – 4:00 happy hour with a half hour break for lunch. $100/day

DATES : January 6th – one day
January 13/14 – 2 day
Feb. 10th – one day

The focus is fun, no fear, techniques to express your unique personal style and unleashing your creative flow through the process of painting. If there are enough people who are interested in a mid week date or a specific date, let me know and I will try to make it happen.”

Music Break : Andy Shauf

My brother texted me with the words “I just discovered Andy Shauf. Reminded me of you. I’m going to see him tomorrow night.” My brother knows me so well. I have been listening to Andy Shauf’s The Magician for a few months now. Since I got the text, I started to listen to more of his music. Now I’m in love with You’re Out Wasting and Early To The Party.

I wish I could go to the show with my brother.
