3-Day UART Workshop with Jeanne Rosier Smith: “Finding the ‘Wow’

Location: South Dennis, MA
Date: Friday, November 10 – Sun, November 12, 2017

Why are some paintings so successful and others leave us flat?  What creates that catch in the breath as we look at a painting, and how do we create that ‘wow’ factor more often in our own work?  If you are looking to push your work to the next level, this workshop is for you.  Take three days to go further, dig deeper.  This workshop will focus on refining goals, defining strengths, and developing your personal style and a stronger connection to your own work.
