WORKSHOP — THE MAGIC OF WATERCOLOR  with Kathie Moisan Ellis 

August 1 & 2         9am – 4pm          Hassen Fisher Studio

Kathie Moisan EllisWe are pleased to present Kathie Moisan Ellis to Central Washington artists. Kathie is from Forest Grove, Oregon, and she fell in love with watercolor about 30 years ago. To her, watercolor is pure magic and watching pigments flow across the white paper is exciting and gratifying. Retiring after 42 years as a nurse, she now has the time to devote to her passion. Kathie has regular classes in her studio, weekly painting groups and is a frequent exhibitor in the Portland area. Most days find Kathie in her studio enjoying the magic of watercolor.

Suitable to all skill levels. Limited to 10 students because of Covid-19 guidelines.

PAINTING WORKSHOP — LANDSCAPE and EXPRESSION

October 10 and 11          9am – 4pm          Hassen Fisher Studio          Ellensburg WA

Landscape painting can be a vehicle for one’s vision, concerns, and values. As a subject in art it is often seen as unexpressive, but it is certainly more than “soft” or “pretty”. Join us for a focused experience on ways to use this subject in ways you might not have considered. This is not a “how-to” workshop — instead, we will focus on your skills and your ability to move past the ordinary. Suitable for all skill levels.

  • $75 for 1 day, $140 for 2 days
  • Media: work with your preferred painting/drawing/mixed media supplies.
  • A specific supply list is given with registration, and some supplies will be provided.
  • We will provide coffee, tea, snacks, encouragement and smiles, and tables and chairs.
  • Class size: 15 maximum. Reservations are taken on a first-come, first-enrolled basis.
  • Cancellations less than 7 days before the starting date receive a 75% refund.
  • Register by email (here) or phone (509|307.3617). We accept credit cards and checks.
