Sharon Young is trying to get the word out about the 3 day watercolor workshop that is scheduled for May 21-23 with Fairbanks artist Vladimir Zhikhartsev, here in Tok.
She took a class from Vladimir in Fairbanks in February ,and says he is an excellent instructor as well as a great artist.
She is excited about the prospect of having something like this right here in Tok. He’s offered to do a 3 day workshop, although he said it’s ok if folks come for less if they can’t do the whole three days. He would charge $210 for the whole 3 days, and $70/day for less time. We need a guarantee of 4 people to make the class.
If you don’t already have your paints he also sent a link where you can order the kind of paints he prefers for a good sales price. The company is Daniel Smith and they have a 24 color set ($99 value) on sale for only $34.95. Pretty good deal. You might want to check around their site too for brushes and paper, although you could probably pick up what you need at Michael’s in Fairbanks, pretty easily.
