These two exceptional artists will be helping students to take the complexities of their subjects
(the landscape, the figure) and help students to reduce their compositions to simple, reduced compositions.
Students will select one of the workshops but enjoy the interactions with instructors and their students.
Nancy and Kathy have worked together before and are very excited about this opportunity to collaborate in Snow Hill.
