September Workshops with Greg LaRock

Our studio and plein air workshops with California artist Greg LaRock were a big success! NIA members as well as artists from across the country attended, and took home valuable lessons in building a painting using the design, composition, and value instruction demonstrated by Greg. He was an outstanding teacher!

See more photos at our Facebook page, facebook.com/NorthernIndianaArtists and on the Elkhart Art Walk Facebook page facebook.com/elkhartartwalk.

Student art from both workshops is on exhibit now, along with several Greg LaRock original paintings, at Arts on Main, 205 S. Main Street, Elkhart, through October. Visit the Arts on Main website for more information at artsonmain.org.
