Alicia Farris Internationally Known Award Winning Watercolor Artist:

Alicia has been painting professionally and teaching classes for over 20 years. Her work has won many awards and been exhibited in international galleries and private collections.

Alicia: "My workshop schedule is back in full swing, only I am teaching most of my workshops elsewhere.  I mentioned to several of you that I intended to schedule a local workshop this summer and I have put one on the calendar at Splatter Studio July 20 and 21st.   As always, I wanted to give you the heads up first in case you were interested.  This one will be "Expressive Faces".  I try to never demonstrate the same subjects, certainly not in the same location so it should be brand new subject matter for you who have taken "Faces" in the past. "

DARE TO DRAW with Tracy Bruton

Have you ever wanted to learn to draw, to lose yourself in the magic that happens with a piece of paper and a drawing tool? Well, you CAN. Everyone can! In this class I will teach you how to see like an artist sees. If you can “SEE” it, you can draw it. Imagine being able to convincingly render anything that is placed in front of you. The class will be taught in bite sided increments to guarantee success. You will be amazed by your progression. We will begin with Graphite but will eventually expand to charcoal, oil pastel, pen and ink, and more.

All of your supplies will be provided. 

You can contact me at

We meet in my home on Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:30.

The cost is $30 per class
