Since I am a huge fan of this creative place, the opportunity was both exciting and so much fun. Arrowmont is a well equipped school with state of the art classrooms and a friendly environment. Unfortunately, on the day I photographed, Debbie, was not present so I am missing her work. She paints lovely whimsical collages and combines paint with stamping. We are having a reunion soon to see what new exciting work is being created and I'll have more examples to post then.

|Robert's Acrylic on board|
The brushstrokes add so much to the surface of this work, I especially love the burnt sienna,
it reads as a worn patina on rusted metal.
|A colorful landscape by Chuck|
Acrylic on board, he is a master at layering color, and the palette he has chosen is bold and clear.
This is the very first painting he has ever done! All these fabulous colors were mixed by the artist.

|Victoria ventured out of her comfort zone and tried some of the acrylic techniques I taught.|
Her talents are many and she showed us her recent work... beautifully rendered portraits in colored pencil.
|Victoria's vibrant trees|
The quality of the foliage is so loose and textured and the little touches of color in the grass contribute the
success of this painting
|Linda working on placement for collage|
This girl is not afraid of anything and was willing to go for it. Great composition and such exciting lively color.

|Beth's cute little bunny|
This is a perfect example how simplicity can make a painting sing.
She was able to resist the temptation to paint a background. Good job!
