This class was previously listed as an Open Acrylic class. Jim is an oil painter and was trying the Open Acrylics for plein air painting at my request.  He has decided that, with the heat, to change the class to an oil class. Those of you who wish to paint in acrylic may still do so, but Jim will be teaching with oils.

AnimalScapes DEADLINE EXTENDED through Oct. 2nd


The fires have brought devastation to our wildlife population and habitats.  In addition, hundreds of domestic and stock animals were rescued, cared for, sheltered and returned to their owners.  Through art, our goal is to raise awareness of these agencies and organizations that advocate for the welfare our diverse animal communities, year round as well as in emergencies.

ARTISTS from Calaveras, Tuolumne and Amador Counties are invited to enter the “AnimalScapes” Art Show.  Application deadline has been extended to Oct. 2nd due to Butte, and Oak fires.  Application details can be found at

This is a juried show, open to 2D and 3D (plus poetry) artists.  There are cash awards in each juried discipline, and 2 inspirational Field Trips; a wildlife and habitat guided tour hosted by CDFW on Oct. 16th, and an on-site tour at the PAWS animal sanctuary on Oct. 23rd, both complimentary, with transportation provided.

“AnimalScapes” of the Sierra Nevada Foothills is the result of a “Creative California Communities” state grant awarded to the Calaveras County Arts Council.  Our partners are the Tuolumne and Amador County Arts Councils, the Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), and the California Department of Fish & Wildlife (CDFW).   Numerous regional animal rescues and advocacy groups will benefit from the exposure received through this Art Event.

This rotating exhibit will open at Ironstone Winery on Jan. 16th, 2016 and run through Feb. 16th.  Hotel Sutter in Amador County will host the show next, beginning Feb. 20th.  The exhibit wraps up in Tuolumne County, opening March 19 and concluding mid-April.  There will be an Artist Reception and celebration at each venue, open to the public.
