The Workshop was founded over 25 years ago by Elaine Witteveen to encourage local artists to improve their techniques and capture the beauty of the Rogue Valley. Members of the Artists’ Workshop paint outdoors as weather permits. The group moves indoors to paint live models in poor weather. Interested artists are encouraged to join and may call 482-5837 to inquire about where and when the group is painting.?
