I was so excited to see Todd & Huff Art Center's email today about upcoming workshops. Billy O O'Donnell will do one in Sept. He does a really good workshop and is a fantastic painter who is in a local gallery. It would be great not to have to travel to attend workshops like these. Shelby Keefe may come next year and she is one of the artists who painted in Cuba recently, as featured in Plein Air magazine. Charleston should be a destination for workshops with nationally known painters, for a variety of reasons. I hope they will be successful with all of these. I'm pretty sure if word gets out they will fill up.
