Design discussions will focus on the subjects of emphasis and pattern,

Painting Better Boats with Suzanne Morris

Working in an alla prima method, Suzanne Morris looks beyond the literal interpretation of a scene to capture the spirit of her subjects.  Drawn to a scene that is magically transformed by the light falling across it, she uses a limited palette to create harmonious paintings that tell a story of a particular time and place.

A member of many organizations, she has won numerous awards and has been featured in many galleries.  Her paintings are held in both private and corporate collections across the country, notably the Duke University Hospitals, UCLA Medical Center at Irvine, Burt’s Bees, East Carolina Bank and the Commandant of Midshipmen at the Naval Academy.  Her work has been featured in American Art Collector, Plein Air, and Southwest Art. Her very popular workshops are well attended and eagerly anticipated. 

You will work in studio and alla prima to create stronger marine themed paintings in either oil or acrylic, meeting and painting each day from 9 to 4.  Yes, you will break for lunch!  A materials list will be provided upon registration.

What:  Painting Better Boats

When:  September 27,28 and 29, 2017

Where:  Hannah Block Community Center, between 9 and 4.

A Living Last Supper is a dramatic and powerful portrayal of Jesus and His disciples on the night before His betrayal. Seated in front of a backdrop of da Vinci's famous painting, each disciple rises to express his thoughts after hearing that there is a traitor in their midst. Music from the Lenten portion of Handel's Messiah performed by the St. Andrews-Covenant Chorale with instrumentalists makes this a memorable Lenten experience.

Anthony Lees


ANTHONY LEES

Early in the morning on March 16, Anthony Lees passed away.  
Anthony was a long time member of the WAA and until recently a very active member.  Anthony and his wife Ann were the chairs of the welcoming committee for the Spring Show for a number of years.  This was but one of the many of the WAA activities that he was involved in.   A wonderful plein air painter, Anthony could often be seen with Ann painting about the area.  He participated in every WAA event and always seemed be there when you needed someone to help, and always with his wonderful smile.  He brought light into the room by just being there.  The service for Anthony will be held at St. Andrews on the Sound at 2pm on Monday, March 20th.  We will all miss him.
