DURANGO, CO – Award-winning oil painter Sharon Abshagen will lead a 3-day workshop at Sorrel Sky Gallery between January 13 -15. “Plunge into Oil Painting!” is the first workshop of a six-part series hosted by Sorrel Sky Gallery.
Abshagen recently won “Best of Show” from the Four Corners Commission and was featured on the cover of SkyWest Magazine. A graduate of Fort Lewis College, Abshagen is a member of the American Academy of Women Artists, The Plein Aire Painters of the 4 Corners, and Oil Painters of America.
“Plunge into Oil Painting!” is the perfect opportunity for beginning oil painters to concentrate on composition, color harmony, and brush strokes.

Minimum class size is 4 with a maximum of 8.
