November 5th - 7th

The Monarch - Ogden, Ut.

$250

I’m excited to invite you to come paint with me in person this November at The Monarch Creative Studios and Event Center in beautiful downtown Ogden, Utah!

For three days, you and I will go over color theory basics, practice methods to help loosen up your brushwork, and focus on how to create mood and express your emotions through art… and much more.

The workshop will run for three full days between November 5 and November 7 (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), from 9am - 5pm. If you’re coming in from out of town, plan on arriving a day early to get settled and explore my awesome city! Also, Friday the 5th is our city’s First Friday Art Stroll, so after a day of painting with me, you’ll get to experience all of the art that The Monarch and surrounding venues have to offer!

There are two hotels within walking distance of The Monarch: the Hilton and Marriot are only about 2-3 blocks away. Making things more convenient is the ability to take the Front Runner train direct from Salt Lake City International Airport to the Ogden Union Station, which is just four blocks away from The Monarch! Also within easy walking distance are a multitude of great restaurants and pubs.

 

Due to COVID-19, we will require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test received no more than 48 hours prior to the event. Masks may or may not be required during class, so please come equipped. 

The cost for the three days is $250.
