Workshops for Adults

Woman creating a watercolor/wax-batik painting.The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art is pleased to offer a variety of art workshops for ages 16 and up.  We generally offer 2-4 workshops per year.  All of the workshops are taught by experienced art educators and/or professional artists.  The classes are most often offered during the weekend and last one full day.  Most of the workshops include the necessary supplies; however, in some cases, attendees will need to bring some every-day objects from home (such as tape, hand tools, paper towels, etc.).  If they so choose, attendees may bring their own art equipment and supplies (brushes, pastels, etc.). 

 Past workshops included:

  • Pastel Painting with Becky Way
  • Watercolor Wax Batik with Beth Wilhelm
  • Leather Masks with Patrick Riley
  • Gourd Baskets with Tina Bly
  • Basket Weaving with Pauline Asbury
  • Jewelry Design with Patti Eayre
  • Portrait Drawing with Katherine Liontas-Warren 
  • Landscape Drawing with Katherine Liontas-Warren
  • Native American Loom Beading with Greg Bohanan
  • Beginning Encaustic with Deanna Wood
