In the art world a workshop is an intense class where you can improve your skills, learn a new medium, try new tools, get a new instructor's take on things... They can last from a half a day up to a week. You can find them in your home town and all across the country and the world. They are a great way to spice up a vacation or they give you a good excuse to see another part of the country. It is always a good idea for artists to try something new, expand your horizons and have some fun while you are doing it.

The WACG is going to be offering workshops here in Myrtle Beach with ongoing regularity. We are going to try to offer at least three 1 day workshops each year and every other year offer a longer workshop. This past spring we had a 3 day acrylics workshop with Patti Brady. It was a great success.

On Sept 22 we will be offering a one day Color Pencil Workshop with Kate Lagaly, Signature Artist Member of the Colored Pencil Society of America, from 9am - 4pm. All supplies will be provided. The fee is $50 for WACG members and $75 for non-members (non-members may join the WACG to receive the reduced fee). The workshop will take place at the Santee Cooper Meeting Room at 1703 Oak Street, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577. If you are interested in attending or need more information contact Kate Lagaly at or call 843-650-3750. If you are in town, Kate will be offering a free demo at our regular WACG
Sept meeting at the B&C Museum on Ocean Blvd at 10:15 am on 9/15.

Since all supplies are provided this is a great chance for you to try something new. With a small investment of time and money you get wonderful introduction to color pencils. They are a versatile medium that takes up little space and can be done easily in most settings.
