2022 Art Workshop Schedule

Here’s my upcoming teaching schedule with links and information. Sign-ups for my spring workshops at the Smithsonian, and summer workshops in Yosemite Valley are open. You can find the links on the right sidebar. Please contact me if you want to be on a mailing list for new workshop announcements and updates. 

I usually teach 2 times a month, on Saturdays, at the Smithsonian Associates in Washington, D.C. Join me for printmaking classes in gyotaku (the Japanese art of printing fish), botanical printing using a walking press, and white-line woodcut printing. I also teach a 3 session watercolor workshop called “The Sketchbook Habit.” Right now I’m teaching these classes over Zoom.

I’ll be in Yosemite in early June with in-person watercolor and printmaking workshops. These are one-day classes, and if you sign up for a class you will also receive a Yosemite National Park peak reservation and free Park admission too. All art supplies are included with the workshop fee, so no worries about packing paint or pads of paper.

In late July, I’ll be teaching botanical bas relief plaster casting at the Nature Printing Society workshop at Acadia National Park in Maine. This week-long workshop (paused for 2 years because of the pandemic) offers classes on all types of nature printing. Look for workshops in gyotaku (of course), book making, botanical printing, botanical monotypes…I’m the president this year, so contact me with any questions, I’d love to hear from you.
