Impressionist painter Dianna Shynewill be doing an all-day workshop at Tri-Dee in Mt. Vernon on the first Wednesday of each month. 

If you’ve been wanting some painting instruction but couldn’t find time for a class every week, this once-a-month class may be just what you’re looking for.  Class size is limited, so you’ll get personal attention.  And the longer class day will give us time to make good progress on our paintings under Dianna’s cheerful guidance.

See the materials list here  






Anna Scott is offering a discount for 3 or 4 person close-up and personal social media workshops for Skagit Artists members. The cost is $40.00 to learn how to set up/link Instagram and/or Facebook accounts in a two-hour workshop (a $10 discount).  In addition to the Anna’s discounted price, Skagit Artist BOD is offering an additional $10 subsidy for the first thirty participants for a $20 total discount. Details of what you can learn from Anna are in the flyer below.

Social Media has proven to be extremely beneficial to not only the individual artist, if used correctly, but to all Skagit Artists members. The more Skagit Artists and its members use Social Media correctly,  the more all members will benefit.  It is a win/win situation.

If you are interested, please contact Anna’s email: annabokma@gmail.com or call her  at 360 982-0014
