May 21-26, 2017: Schreiner University Campus, Kerrville, TX ~ We're honored to be instructors at this unique collaborative Artist Workshop with the Susan Kathleen Black Foundation and the Society of Animal Artists. Last year, Wes taught a one-day session on miniature painting and we're expanding it this year with four days of training in opaque watercolor. Of course, our emphasis will be working small but the techniques apply at any scale. We'll also be demonstrating a variety of subject matter based upon participant feedback: wildlife, landscape, marine, still life and/or portraiture. Come join us for a lifetime career opportunity!

Tiny. The paintings typically measure less than nine square inches and appear even more detailed when viewed under magnification.
The miniature paintings are by Wes and Rachelle Siegrist. …"
