SummerSnow is a great way for artists to take a week out of their busy schedule and participate in an intensive artist workshop. This series of art workshops allow students to interact with artists possessing different kinds of training at all different levels.
The first week of SummerSnow begins June 6 and goes until June 10. Some of the workshops offered during week one are watercolor, portrait drawing, color woodcut printmaking, digital illustration, and portrait sculpture.
The second week of SummerSnow begins June 13 and goes until June 17. Some of the workshops offered during week two are pottery, portrait painting, designing from your inside out, basic printmaking, keys to vibrant water color, and figure drawing.
Carl Purcell, former workshop teacher, shares his insights about past SummerSnow workshops, “I’ve had people say after a three day workshop, ‘I’ve learned more in these three days, than I’ve learned in four years at the University of Art program.’”
As a former attendee of SummerSnow, Amy Jorgensen reflects on her past experience, “I had a great relationship and experience with the teacher that I was with. He was very willing to share his secrets and all of the knowledge that he has learned. I think these workshops would help anybody, at any level.”
The problem with summer time for artists who are students is that they aren’t able to have access to studios and other working artists. It’s important for artists to have that kind of interaction in order to get ideas and support. SummerSnow allows students to learn new art processes and techniques, as well as granting the opportunity to associate with new artists.
