Please take a moment and to scroll down this
page to see a few pictures from the event.


Previously, in September, a watercolor class was held at Rich Ranch in conjunction with the Painting for A Dream - Resident Art Workshop.*

This was a fundraiser for the Rich Ranch Student ART scholarship, which serves 5 local schools. All proceeds went to this effort.

During this class, Kris Gullkson provided instruction for painting with watercolors, creating a landscape with an animal (participant's choice) in the foreground. This sample has a moose.

Kris has 40 years of painting and graphic arts experience. She is a graduate of Colorado Institute of Art in Advertising Design. She is a 10 year member of Alpine Artisans and loves to share creative moments with others. Join her in her studio or out in the community to paint this winter for Uncorked and Creative! Novices are welcome! All supplies are provided.
She will again teach at Painting for a Dream over Memorial Day when AAI hosts Painting for a Dream.

"Art, Undeniably, is conductive to happiness."
