New 2021 ZOOM Workshops available at Carmel Visual Arts

We are announcing some exciting workshops that you will be able to take from the convenience and safety of your own home or studio. With the COVID-9 pandemic lingering into the beginning of 2021, we have three ZOOM-Cast workshops coming up with more to follow in the coming months.

To start off the new year, Mike Hernandez offers a Digital Painting workshop on March 27 & 28, 2021. Mike is well known for his MAD digital skills from years of work on digitally animated movies at DreamWorks. His understanding of natural color and light has brought many animated features to life. His knowledge will be a huge asset for you with any medium of painting you work in. You may also be familiar with his advanced gouache work which he has been perfecting for years as an instructor at Art Center and primarily works in for his amazing fine art.
