Summer Workshops

Hi, I my name is Mikolean Longacre, a long lost attorney and now a full-time artist. Welcome to the new Amelia Island Artists Workshop Blog. We are a two artists, Sandra Baker Hinton and myself who love to paint and learn new techniques. We paint live on beautiful Amelia Island Florida, close to Jacksonville Florida. Each month, we bring award-winning and nationally recognized artists to Amelia Island to show their work and teach their techniques in all creative media to students from around the country. The classes are primarily held across the street from our white sand beach.
Each blog we will share with you information about about our island, workshops, our art and share with you our thoughts about the arts.

Watercolor Artists Look Out!

August 5-7- Soon Yoon Warren, Painting Crystal. Soon, paints the yummiest cherries you have ever seen in a crystal bowl with the richest watercolor I have ever seen. Soon has published her technique in Painting Vibrant Watercolor.

If you prefer Painting the Figure in Watercolor- September 13-17, You must take this five day course with Jane Paul Angelhart. I took her class a few years ago and audited the one in June. She is soooo generous with her time, paint and technique. You won't believe the paintings you will finish during her class. Jane Paul Angelhart has a unique step-by-step method of teaching the student from beginner to advanced, how to paint with clean rich color to create beautiful portraits in watercolor. All level students are welcome.
