The Artist Corner in Crossville will be hosting Italian artist Mara Trumbo who will conduct a full day oil painting workshop in the “wet-on-wet” technique on Saturday, Sept. 27, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Trumbo, a new resident of Rugby, is a protégée of Gary and Kathwren Jenkins, renowned PBS artists whose training she received in Florida, Nevada and recently in Manchester, Georgia, working towards her Jenkins International Instructor certification.

The theme of the floral painting will be “Roses and Lace,” a romantic composition inspired by Trumbo’s love of art, music and everything Victorian.

The workshop will see applicants of all levels complete a full 16”x20” painting in one day. Personalized step by step tuition will ensure everyone will go home happy with their completed painting. The cost is $65 per person inclusive of lunch and a drink at the Artist Corner Café.

To ensure the uniform standard of oil brushes, paints and medium for all attendees, Mara’s Art Expressions Studio will provide these to participants on a loan basis. Canvases may be purchased at the Café’s Gallery Art Shop.

Places will be limited to 10 students maximum (four sign-ups minimum), so book early to ensure your place. Reservations with pre-payment to be made at The Artist Corner, 456-3636.
