August 22-25, 2011 I'll be teaching a 4-day destination workshop on beautiful Mackinac Island, MI. I'll be teaching outdoors for 3 days, then we'll move into the studio for the last day to work with the outdoor sketches and photographs from the first 3 days to produce a studio painting. More information and informational links can be found on PhilStarke.com. This beautiful island offers amazing scenery to paint and I'm looking forward to teaching, as well as painting on the island. Check out the details now and make plans to get away from your daily routine, travel to beautiful Michigan, paint with me and learn some new things.
