Watercolor Painting Workshop
September 12-16, 2011
Monday through Friday
Best Western Beachfront Inn
16008 Boat Basin Road
This will be a thorough workshop, with Tony doing a full sheet demonstration painting each morning, plenty of time for you to paint in the afternoon, and a critique at the end of the day of all the work done that day, each day.
He’ll unravel much of the “mystery” surrounding design while he shows you how to make your paintings fresh and crisp – and he’ll make color much simpler for you, too. Many students have said they have learned more in one day at one of these workshops than in four years of art school!
Tuition is $450 for the Five Days
$400 for members of PBAA
A $50 deposit will hold a spot for you in the workshop, or you may send in the whole amount, if you prefer. The remainder is due March 11. Please make checks payable to Pelican Bay Art Association.
No video cameras at the workshop, please. Still cameras OK
CANCELLATIONS: Tuition is fully refundable any time up to March 11. After that date there will be no refunds unless we can sell your spot to another student. If the workshop should cancel: Full tuition refund, but we are not responsible for non-refundable transportation costs.

The November Brookings Second Saturday Art Walk featured singing, dancing, a birthday party, limericks, and art demonstrations.
During the Art Walk Jeanne demonstrated painting a tiger in oil. Her demo was projected on screen so that everyone could see. Mike Rice has put together a video system for art demonstrations at Manley Art Center that everyone is excited about. No more huge mirror hanging down to bump your head on and the demo can be clearly seen from anywhere in the room. See more of Jeanne Warren's art at: www.jwarrenart.com.
Manley Art Center and Gallery is featuring a show this month called "Honoring Our Own". Portraits of members made by members. Carl Rovainen and Friends entertained during the Art Walk and took requests for favorite tunes that kept toes tapping.
Here's the Birthday Boy. Horst Wolf celebrated his 80th birthday at Brian Scott Gallery, along with Leslie and the rest of Brookings. Ask who made the cake. It was FABULOUS! Christina Olsen fashioned a crown for Horst, which he proudly wore the rest of the evening.
The Limericists: from left, Elmo Williams, Marjorie Woodfin, Limericist King Bryan Skidmore, new Queen Katherine Benjamin, Bill Schlichting, Christina Olsen, and Horst Wolf. The group recited original "Holiday" limericks, then roundly roasted Horst.

Yaquina Head Lighthouse in Newport is one of five finalists selected as the possible starting point for a new reality show, "No Way Home," starring CBS weatherman David Price of " The Early Show."
We're up against some pretty stiff competition from San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Anchorage, but we Oregonians have never let our underdog status hold us down. We were in third place last week and rose to Number One over the weekend! We have a real opportunity to showcase the natural beauty and inherent generosity of The People's Coast to a national audience. But we need your vote to make it happen, and we need it now! Voting ends on November 10 at 12:00pm EST - less than 48 hours from now.
So cast your vote for Yaquina Head and the Oregon Coast. You are only able to vote once so please help us get the word out by sending an email or tweet your friends, post a Facebook alert, send an Instant Message, or make an old-fashioned phone call and help us rally to victory! We're The People's Coast of Oregon, and we approve this message.
The Stout Mountain Railway Club is looking for some artistic volunteers to help us create this layout. Will take 10 to 14 days to complete and then 14 days of operation. Open December 10th. Our aim is to start moving in on Thanksgiving weekend. The track has been bought, Thomas and Friends have arrived. Still waiting for Nole Pole Express. We also have two Bachmann Train sets to raffle off. One Thomas and the other Percy. Ho and N scale will also have a space in our layout. We have an outline of the layout that we will try to adhere to but creativity sometimes can't be planned. The room is huge so not a limitation. Instead of all the tables bunched together like last year we will spread the tables apart then bridge where we need to. We will create a mountain in the center or off center of the layout using old styrofoam packaging, glued, shaped,and painted. The layout will be multi level as high as we dare go.
If you know of a business or organization that would be interested in being a sponsor of the Stout Mountain Railway please pass along this information.
The season is only what you make of it so lets make it big!
