WORKSHOPS

Our instructors are not just outstanding artists, they know how to teach. Our workshops typically have a demonstration in the morning of the first day and provide close-up views of what the instructor is doing on a large screen, visible from all angles. The curriculum of the remainder of the workshop is determined by the instructor.

 

We have a 2,400 square feet facility in a tranquil spot and provide easels, palette tables, stools, chairs, lighting and wonderful refreshments. We always have an artist-monitor to assist the instructor and the students so that everyone can completely focus on painting.

 

Finally, we have an instructor/student party at our house in the evening of the first or second day to get to know each other in a fun and relaxed way.  This is one way for us to make sure that our workshops are not just very well organized and instructive events but also a very enjoyable experience for everybody.

Testimonials

On Jeff Legg's workshop

Dear Sieb and Cary,

I was so inspired by Jeff's workshop and by the wonderful artists I had the pleasure

of spending four art-filled days with, sharing our thoughts and challenges. Thank you for bringing

Jeff's many talents to our attention by hosting the workshop. We all loved being included in a dinner

at your lovely home. I felt like I was in a painting just standing near your garden.

 

 I will plan my future vacations and art education with Whidbey Island on the top of my list.

 

Blessings to you,

Hello Sieb and Cary,

I thoroughly enjoyed and gained so much from this workshop. I felt Jeff was an excellent teacher as well as an incredible artist to learn from. The other artists in the class were a pleasure as well. I look forward to coming back again in the future for another great experience of painting!

Oh , and , not to be forgotten, the fabulous dinner you gave us in your beautiful home. Many sincere thanks!

On TJ Cunnigham's demo

 

Cary and Sieb, you both never cease to amaze me with your well-organized, finely-executed, professional workshops and demos. Simply so well done! I much appreciate you. And your artists are truly inspiring and top-notched. I learned so much and so enjoyed James Tennison's workshop, and Zhaoming Wu's, Rob Liberace's, and TJ Cunningham's demonstrations. I can not speak highly enough about each and every one of them and their artistic skills--the very best! I'll be there for their workshop in the future, looking forward to more great teachings. Thank you, again,

On Kathy Anderson's workshop

I just wanted to drop you a quick note and thank you for the excellent workshop.

Kathy is an excellent teacher and I returned home with lots of new and valuable information.

Thank you for opening up your home and your beautiful garden to us. I plan to attend an

other workshop with you in the future. 

 

On Robert Liberace’s Workshop

Hi Cary - I want to thank you for an impeccable week of painting with Rob Liberace! I knew I would learn from watching Rob paint but his style of teaching and personality were a pleasant surprise. Your organization and hospitality (great food!) really made this a great week. Though I know you have little control over the chemistry of the students, I thought it could not have been better. In total, a great week for me and the other guys from Tennessee.
Please send me the information on the planned trip to the Netherlands. My wife is interested in joining me if this should come to pass. If you are planning this, I know it will be perfect.


 

On David Gray's Workshop

 

- I wanted to thank you and Sieb first for the lovely dinner at your house.   I admired you so much for being able to put that together yourself (with Sieb's assistance I'm sure).  Your lasagna was just great, really special!   

David Gray was an outstanding instructor and I am truly in awe of his skill as a painter, both of portraits and his one still life that he showed us.   He was nice, too.   I learned a lot, and most of it I would be hard pressed to put into words.   

So once thanks for hosting us and seeing to our needs during the day.

- Thank you so much for given me the opportunity to attend the work shop with David Gray. I really enjoyed the amazing experience. Now it’s up to me to develop my skills using his techniques. The dinner was fantastic and it was an ice breaker to meet everyone else in the class.  I really had a good time. Thanks again.

- Thank you so much for all the effort you put forth to have this class.  It truly enriched my life!

On Max Ginsburg's workshop

What a privilege and pure joy to have had the opportunity to attend the Max Ginsburg workshop at Whidbey Fine Arts Studio.  Max is a true master of both art and instruction. While he is demonstrating painting, he clearly explains every aspect from design to block-in to brush strokes. As the students paint, he moves from artist to artist, discussing what is working and what might be done to improve their paintings.  The workshop was a very wonderful and positive experience.

Furthermore, Cary is an absolutely wonderful hostess and coordinator of the Whidbey Fine Arts events. I loved every minute of the five-day workshop.  Thank you.

On Zhaoming Wu's Workshop


Zhoaming Wu makes the difficult look easy. He is a master of color, edges, and 'romance' in the painting. The models were inspiring and even the snacks were outstanding. Thanks for a great workshop that I will remember for a long time.

The Zhaoming Wu workshop was nothing short of magical. He is a kind and insightful teacher. Watching his demos sent me right into that rare painting zone where wonderful things happen on the canvas."

Lovely to come back to Whidbey, thanks for your hospitality. You did an amazing job with the organization, very professional."

Thank you so much for such a wonderful workshop.  My expectations were absolutely exceeded!  Not only were the instructors amazing but all of the students needs were met. The icing on the cake was being invited to Cary's beautiful home for a wonderful BBQ. I will be recommending your school to all of my artist friends!!

On Anne Belov's Workshop

 

I love having local artists teach; being in touch with people we can see again and who are in touch with our community (general and artistic) is really great. I also enjoyed the people in the group...fun getting acquainted there too. The size of the group was marvelous...just right.""I learned to think about not just connecting the objects to each other in a still life, but to think ahead about something about myself I want to connect to the painting, then use that as a genuine way to select the objects and arrange them in a way that expresses something to me. Ultimately, I am sure that will relay a stronger painting to the viewer." I learned that one should always have a story or event that the still life is about before starting the painting. Also using a shadow box is really helpful.
