  • Fall 2018 Session- 11/04/2018- 11/09/2018

  • Spring 2019 Session- 3/24/19 -3/29/19

  • Fall 2019 Session- 11/10/2019 – 11/15/2019

  • Background: This event is born of many years of wonderful experiences at Springmaid Watermedia Workshops in Myrtle Beach.  For anyone who has attended in these workshops in the past, you know the power of artists coming together in community to work and share.  Historically these workshops have been all inclusive and very expensive. To try and create a lower cost alternative, I have made this arrangement. ❤

  • Overview: Set up will be on on Sunday with an optional meet and greet social in the evening at a local restaurant.  Monday through Friday Independent studio time in our spacious ocean view studio.
  • There will be no “instructor” other than the inspiration we gain from one another.   Once we set up, there will be no need to clean up…the studio is ours for the week.  I plan to organize some “happy hour presentations” made by those in our group who may be interested in sharing a technique or an idea.  Interested participants can attend if they wish.

  • Details- This is an opportunity for fellow creatives to gather and share a concentrated week of painting.  We will check out of our regular lives and check into our oceanfront studio! The location is one where you can spread out, and paint your heart out for the week!

  • Cost: $300. Registration can be made by sending a check.
    • Make your check payable to Art Myrtle Beach LLC, 238 Center Dr., Myrtle Beach, SC, 29572
    • (Note- this will reserve your place in the workshop, with an individual 6-8 ft table.
    • No food or drink will be included in this price.
    • Lodging rates are separate.
    • Special groups rates for rooms at the resort are available and described below.
    • Payments for workshop are non-refundable but transferable to another painter if you cannot attend. It is the participant’s responsibility to find a substitute.)


  • Vision: My hope is to create the setting and let the participating Artists create the experience…sharing, painting, and learning from one another in a weeklong independent art community where all water-based media will be welcomed. I plan to set up optional daily sharing demos for those interested in giving them, and for those who are curious about what others might be doing.  Fall 2018 Session will be preceded by Janet Rogers and Don Andrews in 2019. If you’d like to come the week before to enjoy the instruction, you could think about staying for this second week. It could be used a time to independently practice what you may have learned during the week before.

The restaurants onsite and within walking distance would make doing without a car possible.
