2020 Summer Workshops

Upcoming Personal Enrichment Summer Workshops and Talks:


Ocean City Arts Center (17th and Simpson, OC, NJ)
This workshop will be run two times due to demand:
The Finer Points of Pen and Ink

Saturday, May 9 (SOLD OUT!) and a second workshop was added due to demand: June 6 (7 seats left) from 10 AM – 2 PM.

Description: I will instruct beginners on basic pen and ink drawing techniques using traditional dip and newer cartridge pens. Techniques addressed include hatching, gestural drawing, light washes, and the inclusion of organic, flowing lines, which will give your drawings and watercolors a more animated and lively appearance. Participants will combine inking techniques with limited palettes of watercolors after learning different pen and ink techniques. Most materials will be supplied and loaned (and collected back after the workshop). Paper will be supplied as well.

Reservations required: Please call (609) 399-7628 and reserve your seat through the Ocean City Art Center.


Atlantic Cape Community College:
Sketching Tips and Tricks for Beginners

Tuesday, June 16, 2020

Time: 10:00 A.M. – 2 P.M.
Place: Atlantic Cape Community College; Room K136, Mays Landing Campus

Title: “Sketching Tips and Tricks for Beginners”
Contact Michele Mateluvich at mmatulev@atlantic.edu to register. All participants must be registered in advance of the workshop.
NOTE: All participants MUST be registered before the day of the workshop.

Description: From gesture to sustained drawing, a sketchbook can be one of the most valuable tools but too often is underutilized especially by those just starting out. Atlantic Cape Community College’s Professor of Art, Cheryl Knowles-Harrigan will teach participants to expand their use of a sketchbook. Included will be gesture drawing, washes in monochrome, pen & ink, and quick versus refined pencil techniques. Also discussed will be sighting angles and space, tackling and capturing the essence and value patterns of your subject. This workshop is a must for anyone who wants to maximize their sketchbook, increase their repertoire of media and see better to ultimately draw better. This workshop is ideal for beginners as drawings are small scale and different media and techniques are addressed from the concept of line, through tone using different media.

(Supplies and snack not included – we will take a snack break. Participants must be 18 years or older.)
