Over the second weekend in October, the Black Creek Arts Center will be hosting three workshops: Oil Painting with Ilona Smithkin, Watercolors with Anne Patterson, and Photoshop Elements with Duane Childers.

Ilona Smithkin will kick off her 2009 Tour of South Carolina with a one-day oil painting workshop on October 10th. The workshop will take place from 9am to 4pm at the Black Creek Arts Center. This still-life workshop will be perfect for beginning and experienced painters. Cost for the workshop is $70 and lunch will be provided.

Anne Patterson will be leading a watercolor workshop on October 9th and 10th. The two-day workshop will cost $150 (lunch provided on Saturday) and meets from 10am-4pm both days. Patterson’s workshop is going to focus on teaching participants what makes color vibrant and how to use color to create a calm and serene image. Patterson will also teach participants to become more expressive and adept in understanding the impact of color choices in watercolor paintings.
