    Summer, 2016
    E-mail Susie for More Information!!! 2016 Summer Marbling Workshop dates will come out in March. These will be 2 day Workshops Susie runs from her home in Portland, OR. The first day is a full morning of prepping everything you plan on Marbling, 9:30-12:30 and the following day is a Full Day of Marbling from 9:30 - 4:30. These popular Workshops are designed for artists who might want to take their paintings to a new level with the addition of marbling, but we've been known to marble everything from car consoles, footwear, & furniture to bike helmets! If it fits in the Marble Bath, we'll try it!
    Please e-mail: soozcow@aol.com if you would like more information on these Marbling Workshops and she'll make sure you get the Summer Dates for 2016!
  • San Juan Island, WA
    October 18-22, 2016
    We have opened up registration for our Annual Fall Colors painting Getaway in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island in Washington State October 18 - 22, 2016. This has been an annual painting retreat for us going on 17 years...Lee & Susie organize this event, rent the Grange Hall overlooking Friday Harbor and the Marina, schedule a meet and greet for participants prior to the date, and coordinate Food Pods and Travel, as well as suggest places to stay on the Island. The price remains low on this trip because unlike our Workshops, Lee and Susie go as participants and paint along with the group, leading a critique each morning and sharing tips and help with the group as things arise. It's a favorite among self directed artists! Click here to download a brochure.
