Join local and regional artists as they share their art expertise. Our art workshops series takes place at the historic Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum, located downtown in Marquette Park. Supplies are provided, but you may bring your own. Class sizes are limited, early registration recommended to guarantee space. If you have questions or wish to register, please call 906-984-4124 or by email at director@mackinacartscouncil.org

Join Northern Michigan artist Mary Bea McWatters for “Painting in the garden.” In this workshop you will learn multiple skills to bring your painting to life. Mary Bea will show you her techniques for painting in layers to create luminosity and depth in a garden painting. You will learn to see flowers, plants, and light in a new way and be taught how to transfer this into a painting you will be proud of. As an added bonus Mary Bea will show you her paint-by-bike set up, so you can take your studio with you on your rides around the lovely Mackinac Island! No matter your skill level you will ride away with a new appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us.
