Beverly Hooks Impressionist Workshops


“Exploring your Artistic Creativity in Acrylic Painting”


“Exploring your Artistic Creativity in Acrylic Painting” Workshops are offered monthly by Artist & Author, Beverly Hooks Impressionist at the Mary E. Theler Community Center in Belfair, Washington.

Each workshop will be from 9am to 5pm, and begin with a two hour teaching demonstration followed by ‘plenty of painting time’ to explore your own creativity. Beverly will be available to work with you one-on-one as needed following the demonstration. Beverly gives permission for you to paint her demo or you may bring your own subject matter.

The full day (eight hour) workshop is designed to aid in composition, perspective, spatial relationship, color, tonal values, atmospheric value, and finding the light. Beverly’s painting demonstration subjects will change monthly. Workshops are scheduled for one Thursday and Saturday each month. Please check The Theler Center calendar of events or visit Beverly’s Calendar page for dates and times. Each workshop will be limited to twenty artists.  Sign up early to secure your spot in the class and receive an early registration discount.

The desired atmosphere is one of relaxed learning and fun… so come join the fun!
