DVAS Workshops for 2019 …

Happy New Year everyone, and welcome to another exciting year of painting and self expressionism.

This year we have a wonderful lineup thanks to Kitty Wiley.  She has worked very diligently in accessing potential artists for this years workshops.  Sadly she has decided to give up her position, but I will be stepping in to fill the gap, and Crystal Edwards will now be handling registrations for upcoming workshops.  Please contact her at(902) 404 6246, or by email: crystalann0396@gmail.com

Doug has requested that everyone attending this workshop should bring painting supplies of their choice, remembering that if you use oil paints, this is a water-based oil paints class. If you use acrylics, that is fine. Doug has also requested that everyone bring at least two canvases 9 x 12 or whatever size you choose.
