Weekend Painting Workshop
Saturday & Sunday, May 2nd & 3rd
Curry Arts received a $1000 grant award from the Curry County Cultural Coalition to help cover the expense of bringing an experienced workshop instructor to Gold Beach.The first weekend in May was available at the Curry County Extension Service Center at the Fairgrounds in Gold Beach and worked for our guest instructor: Margaret Godfrey.
An online visit to http://www.margaretgodfreyart.com will take you to Margaret's wonderful website. A click on "About the Artist" will introduce her.
Margaret Godfrey enjoys using a wide variety of subject matter for her artistic interpretation. Her pictures incorporate both representational and abstract styles and often include both. Living in the beautiful McKenzie Valley in Oregon and traveling throughout the U.S and abroad, she finds an abundance of inspiration for creating art.
Margaret shares her enthusiasm for watercolor through teaching and active membership in watercolor associations. She taught for five years at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon, and now holds workshops and private lessons.
To view her art, there are four Galleries: River Inspired; Places; Abstracts; Patterns & Collage.

Our Weekend Workshop will expand your experience with representational shapes united with abstract form using watercolor, acrylic paint and collage.
Learn how to start a painting with a textured surface; how to create collage papers; how to compose a dynamic abstract design; how to combine abstract design with representational shapes; how to use color and shape to unify a painting; how to build a painting using an intuitive process.
Margaret uses an intuitive approach which she describes as "creating and solving problems.'' Her fearless approach to the creation of a painting will help you let go, loosen up, and stop worrying about the rules.
