My friend Tara L. Chang has begun a new workshop series with some awesome artists. I attended her very first one in November 2011 featuring Greg Manchess. The classes are small, providing some awesome one-on-one teacher/student interaction. I'm really hoping to get to Justin Gerard's if things work out here. I would attend all of them if I could. Seriously, a wonderful lineup of instructors held in a charming artsy village-like setting with fun stores and eateries. I highly recommend it. Click on the link below for more info.
