2020 Carmel Workshop Roster

In the midst of the strangest COVID-19 affected year, below are the 4 workshops we were able to host in 2020.

Per Elof Nilsson Ricklund | Figure (Studio) | Jan 2020
Dennis Perrin | Still Life (Studio) | Feb 2020
Derek Penix | Still-life (Studio) | July 2020
Angus Wilson | Still life (Zoom-Cast) | July 2020

I want to thank the instructors and students that were involved with these 2020 workshops. Since we could only host 4 workshops this year—out of the 18 we originally had scheduled—we closed our studio and gallery at the Barnyard Shopping Village location at the end of July 2020. I am thankful for the 7 years we were there. Now we can be more nimble and adjust to the everchanging “new-normal”. The biggest part of that for us is our everchanging workshop schedule. We had to cancel some workshops, while others we could postpone to 2021.

Many of you have let us know that you can commit to changing to the new date. Many thanks to you all! It is with this hopefulness and optimism building in our community that will allow us to confidently move ahead and keep bringing the best instructors and students together in Carmel, CA from around the world. I would like to give a very special thanks to those that are able to donate their payments to the ongoing work of Carmel Visual Arts. If you were registered in a workshop that was canceled or postponed, and have asked for a refund, please be patient as we rebuild our business. We will honor your request as we are able.

Thank you,
Rich Brimer, Director
Carmel Visual Arts
