Feb 7, 2018
Stevens Pass, Washington
Morning - Watercolor Workshop
Winter in the mountains can be remote, quiet, introspective and inspiring. Join local artist Nikki Frumkin for a morning of watercolor painting in the mountains. We will capture the light, energy and movement of the mountains.
This workshop is designed for the beginner and seasoned painter alike. Everyone will have the opportunity to create their own plein air paintings. We will find inspiration in the spectacular surroundings of the Snoqualmie area. As we paint, there will opportunities to talk about creative voice, technique, process, art as a business, sharing art on social media and more.
Afternoon - Writing Workshop
Whether you’re an experienced author, part-time blogger, or curious novice, this writing workshop will give you a glimpse into the wide world of adventure writing and help you realize your potential as a writer. We will be inspired by the Snoqualmie area. Whatever your experience level might be, Charlotte wants to hear about your goals, help you hone your skills, and ask the hard questions that will help you move your writing forward.
