“From the beautiful to the discarded, I am inspired by many things as an artist. I rarely know what will be the subject of my painting efforts, but once discovered, I strive to articulate my impression of that reality into a collection of abstract shapes, strong design and color”

- Capturing the subject quickly and accurately
- Creating strong compositions

Demonstrations, group critiques and individual personal instruction are included. Class will be taught mostly from the oil painting and gouache perspective. You can use any medium you like, if you are comfortable with how to use it.
About Susquehanna Art Workshops:
Susquehanna Art Workshops is the brainchild of Melissa Carroll and Marita Hines. Their goal is to bring in the best instructors, the "cream of the crop" to Marietta to teach in-person workshops. The workshops will always take place mid-August to late-September and be held at the Union Meeting House or one of the great painting sites in the river towns if the workshop is plein air. Melissa and Marita bring these special opportunities to artists in neighboring communities and to invite people from out-of-town to enjoy the richness of our farmland, river views, small-town charm, and all this area has to offer. If you have questions or suggestions, please let us know. Marita can be reached at 717-314-9551.
