7:00 PM - 8:30 PM    Intermediate i Art - Intermediate i Art
This workshop experience is designed for artists who have completed introductory practice in digital artwork. Artists should have completed a handful of works and are familiar with their machine technology.  Each class will begin with a demonstration of some aspect of artistic endeavor with focus on the tools of the digital artist. Topics will include reflective surfaces (one of the four requisites of painting water), soft and hard surfaces, clouds and glass. A special feature will be exploration of color theory on a firm scientific basis.  Emphasis is on development and implementation of artistic vision and maintaining “brush-marks” of each artist.Instructor: John Deitz

9:30 AM - 10:45 AM    Healthy Relationships - Healthy Relationships
The "Healthy Relationships" workshop will give participants the opportunity practice the essential skills for sustaining healthy relationships. We are social beings - from birth we thrive on connection, interaction and warmth. With relationships being so crucial to our well-being, it is easy to become wounded when we do not seem to get the responses we desire from others. Just as we can be wounded in relationships, we can heal in relationships. This workshop teaches the how-to steps of thriving in relationships. Perfect for singles, couples, separated/divorced men and women, parents of teens, team managers and anyone who dreads Thanksgiving dinner. Photo credit: By Sergey Koznov on Unsplash
