Registration is now open for an art workshop with noted, visiting artist and abstract painter, Rebecca Crowell to be held August 9-11 in Homer at the Kachemak Bay Campus.

The emphasis is on cold wax medium and exploration and experimentation with the process.
This workshop is in conjunction with Crowell’s Aug. 2 Pratt Museum show, “Beneath the Surface.” The deadline for registration is July 26 and there is a minimum enrollment requirement. The fee is $175.
