Parents are encouraged to bring their children (4 yrs – 14 yrs) to the Tybee Arts Association for a fun-filled shopping experience!  Parents will shop on one side of the building while the children shop on the other (supervised of course).  All gifts available for purchase will be at “Kid-Size Prices” in the House of the Christmas Mouse, with no single item over $10.  Give the kids some money and let them do their own shopping for family members, help wrap the gifts they purchase, maybe watch a puppet show, sing a little and perhaps even get to visit with a “special guest”!  

….all while YOU shop in our gallery for people on YOUR  gift list!

(there will be limited items available, so don’t wait too late!)

January 26-28, 2016

Tybee Island, GA

9:30 am to 4 pm daily


"Come paint with me and enjoy the historic Southern charm of Tybee Island during this 3 day studio oil painting workshop in January 2016!" 

 In this indoor studio painting workshop I'll emphasize my simple three step approach to painting, covering topics essential to successful landscape painting such as design, simplification, values, color mixing, creating depth, and creating a sense of light and atmosphere. I'm also excited to be introducing something new to my workshops this year... "landscape element focus sessions". I'll include one on "Painting Trees" and another on "Painting Clouds". These focus sessions include presentation as well as learning by doing and are created to really help you paint these common landscape elements beautifully. 

Each day will include a presentation, demo, focus session, group feedback session, and lots of time for you to paint with individual attention from me. I'll keep it fun while we are getting a lot done! 

 Really Great Lodging Deals with Mermaid Cottages!

Pamper yourself while there in one of Tybee's aptly named historical Mermaid Cottages, a collection of vintage cottages, historic homes and beach bungalows located all over the island. You'll find no shortage of inspiration from the moment you arrive. Mermaid Cottages is delighted to offer some great special rates for this event. Ask for information about lodging when you sign up or call Mermaid Cottages directly at 912-704-4618.
