SAWG now offers small or “mini” workshops – all are in the workshop room at the Gallery. They are taught by members of SAWG who have expertise in various areas of artistic expression. These mini-workshops give our members an opportunity to learn new skills, or fine tune previously learned techniques.
Additionally Open Studio is held in the Gallery every Friday and available to any SAWG member and their friends who wants to paint with members of the SAWG community. Life Studies Open Studio is offered each first and third Saturday from 8:30am to 12:30. (See below for more info)
Please let us know of classes you would like to see taught in our Gallery. If you’d like to teach a workshop, fill out this form and it will be sent to Loisanne Keller.
Check below for current offerings. If you see a listing you are interested in, please contact the instructor directly as SAWG is not involved in the registration process for these classes.

Life Studies Group Open Studio – an opportunity for artists to concentrate on drawing/painting from a live model (clothed) in company with other artists with similar interests. No instruction is provided but participants will learn by example and hone their skills such that they can incorporate people into their paintings. While many artists draw, historically most participants have painted during the sessions. Bring paper for several quick and three or four longer poses. The Life Studies Group has been a SAWG supported activity for many years organized by SAWG members Allison and Peter McCray.
Please enter by the back door of the Gallery. No registration necessary. For more information, firstname.lastname@example.org No Life Studies Group till the fall. More details to come.
Open Studio: 9am – 12pm every Thursday thru mid-June, resuming in the fall.
