Monday in Painting Tutorials – Come by tomorrow for an excellent guest tutorial by Joe Papagoda demonstrating how to apply the perfect varnish finish on your paintings.

Tuesday in Motivation – Carrie Lewis will share a personal story about her recent period of “creative stillness” and some of the things she’s learned from it.
