Fort Worden State Park

  1. Alla Prima Painting with Chris Witkowski, Last Saturday of the Month

    January 26, 2019, 9:00 AM - May 25, 2019, 4:00 PM

    This initiates a series of ongoing, once a month, full day workshops exploring Alla Prima painting. Commit to your painting. Set aside one day a month and feel good about making it happen. Alla prima is Italian for “at the first” or “at once” and represents the technique of direct painting. Specifically, it has come to mean finishing a painting in one shot. The success or failure of the results rides on the inspiration of the moment and the skill of the artist. It calls for a totality of vision, seeing the “whole picture” in a simplified way. It requires discipline and an economy of technique so as to say more with less. It’s challenging but so satisfying when you pull it off. You will be working from still life materials, learning and practicing all the ways one can achieve a fresh, vibrant painting. Keeping your palette and painting tools clean is of paramount importance in this style of painting. You learn to work fast and cover your painting surface quickly.

Rockport State Park

  1. Experience Shinrin-Yoku (Forest bathing)

    March 23, 2019, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Rockport State Park

    This is a special opportunity to experience shinrin-yoku in the environs of an ancient forest. We will gather at the Discovery Center for a 15 minute overview of forest bathing and then venture outside.

    Our guide, Michael Stein-Ross will help us slow down and open up to the message and wisdom of the forest. It is a time to discover what our ancestors enjoyed on a regular basis. We will use all five senses to move through the forest without a particular destination or goal aside from mindfulness.

    Please wear appropriate clothing for rainy weather and bring some water or some beverage for hydration.
