Artist Joey Frisillo will teach a Mini Landscapes Workshop on Wednesday, May 21, from 10 am to 4 pm in The Depot, 200 South Jones, Norman, in conjunction with “Oklahoma Colors: Earth, Sky and Water,” a solo exhibit of her work in the Depot Gallery.
Frisillo will be guiding students to explore compositions, color choices and application techniques through a series of small paintings, each of which can stand alone or be a study for a larger work. Demos will be in pastel and oil, but students may use any 2D medium. Workshop cost is $60 per person with an enrollment limit of twelve. Contact The Depot at 405 307-9320 for enrollment information and a materials list.
