Changing Changes

Hi everyone,

     There are 3 changes to Carole's email that was sent out last week--an addition, a change of fees for the plein air day, and a cancellation.

Hope to see you at at least one of Carole's offerings this fall.

First:     En Plein Air!  Come paint the the beautiful Florence docks with us!  It is supposed to be fantastic weather this Saturday! Saturday, September 13th is the day to plein air paint on the scenic Florence docks, weather permitting.  We will meet at the docks at 9:30 am. (I will collect fees at that time.)   We will set up either on the boardwalk or dock area to spend the day together. Carole will instruct and demo both in the morning and the afternoon.  She will also walk around and assist/comment/instruct/encourage as long as you're within a close proximity of her. Cost is $50.   Lunch is on your own. Please register by email and if you can't make it that morning, be kind, and please let me know as soon as possible.
Second:  Come Check Me Out!  Announcing an Absolute Beginner's Watercolor Class.  Carole will paint a fun loose watercolor demonstrating the various watercolor techniques and bright beautiful colors she uses.  She will also start with the basics:  what materials to purchase and where, a discussion of what watercolor is all about, terminology, color washes, mixing etc.  It's a relaxed time to ask questions, and take pictures.  The first class is Free and you will not have to paint.  No Pressure!
      Carole has set up Thursday, October 16th  from 1:00 - 3:00 pm for prospective students to come to Carole's home studio to explore this wonderful exciting medium.
     There is a limit of 12 interested people so email Charlene Wilson at or call 541-997-8676 to reserve your space.  Future classes will be held on Thursday afternoons October 30th, November 6th, 13th, and 20th,  from 1:00 - 4:00.  Cost is $100 for 4 sessions.
 Third:  October 4th:  Carole has cancelled  the demonstration at the FRAA's demARTS  due to her watercolor "Barnum and Bailey" acceptance into the WSO show.  She will be in Medford at the Watercolor Society of Oregon's big gathering.
 Fourth:  "Painting the Oregon Coast---Fog, Wind, Waves, and Water" Watercolor Workshop
has been scheduled for Friday and Saturday, October 24th and 25th.  Cost is $150.  Send in your registration early for this wonderful informative and fun workshop.  We live in Oregon so we might as well learn to paint the beautiful moist blue grays of our foggy winter days. Carole will be painting on canvas but you may choose to paint on either your watercolor paper or watercolor canvas.
     Looking ahead:  Painting Watercolor Canvas:  Wet, Wild, and Bold at the Emerald Art Center, Springfield, Oregon, February 10 - 12, 2015.  Write the date on your calendar and more information to come.
