Marla Baggetta’s Workshop.

I am so thrilled to be hosting a 3 day workshop with Marla Baggetta, here at Big Hill Retreat. Marla, who is a well established artist from Portland, creates the most magical images and she will be here for 3 days to help guide us with her ‘Loosen Up and Break Thro’ workshop.

OCTOBER 23 – 26, 2014.

Course Description

Marla Baggetta’s Loosen Up & Break Through! pastel painting workshop is based on “100 Variations”, a pastel series featured in Pastel Journal, which marked a shift in Marla’s career and became a metaphor for her life as an artist. By working on multiple pieces of the same composition students discover how to “loosen up” and push their boundaries as painters. Over the course of the workshop students will use the fundamentals of painting as the foundation as they explore the lessons that can be learned by immersing oneself into a theme. Some mixed media will be explored to foster a non-precious approach. This workshop will include demonstrations, individual mentoring and positive, actionable critiques.This is a fast paced lively workshop for both the beginner and experienced artist.

You can check out her work and philosophy by visiting her blog

Here are a few images of her pastel paintings!

Space will be limited to 10-11 participants….we already have 6 signed up so please get in touch with me soon if you would like more information about it. I’m so excited to be able to offer such a fabulous artist to our community, I know it is going to be an amazing experience.

The cost of the 3 day workshop is $660.00 which includes 3 nights shared accommodation at Big Hill Retreat. You can view our website for more information: http://www.bighillretreat.com.
We will gather here on the Thursday evening, for a light supper and to meet each other. The workshop will take place 24, 25 & 26th, ending on the Sunday. Food will be on an ‘organised’ (by me!) pot luck basis, and we will eat in the main dining room of our home.
