I recently started taking classes with Craig Srebnick, (http://www.csfineart.com/) at the Oregon Society of Artists and I have to say I'm hooked. Below are two stages of the demo he worked on over the last two classes. After three classes with him it feels like my painting has taken a huge leap forward. Maybe it's just my confidence but I am sure enjoying the experience. I'll post my painting later. He is looking for warehouse space to start some larger classes. He also has some free demos if you are interested in checking him out. He is a very knowledgeable instructor.
On another topic I wanted to mention the Columbia Fiber Arts Guild, http://www.columbiafiberartsguild.org/exhibits.htm, for those wonderful fiber artists out there (Bonnie and Joyce!). I am a past member and found it to be a very supportive and professional group. They have a "call for artists" listed on their site right now.
