WAA Bob Rankin Workshop

Bob Rankin, our Spring Show Judge, is presenting a three-day painting workshop Monday - Wednesday, April 28 - 30 at the New Hanover Co. Arboretum Auditorium. If you had a chance to meet him and see his work at the show, you know that he has a deeply rooted sense of design and color expressed in his beautiful abstract landscapes.

Abstracting from Representation is an opportunity for any painter to step beyond the representational mode and incorporate exercises and techniques for a more abstract process. All levels welcome. Bob will focus on acrylics and provide individual attention to each student's goals and style.

A few spots remain…$300 for WAA members, $350 non-members.
Register now at www.wilmingtonart.org or contact Kirah Van Sickle at kirahart@yahoo.com
