What's Included

Join Roger McCoy and Ramana Konantz to seek the answer to two fundamental questions: Am I an artist? What is missing from my art? In three sessions we will explore the link between our inner selves and expressing that beauty to others. Our goal is to answer these questions through discussion and a variety of creative drawing methods that will help us link our unconscious mind with our conscious mind. This balancing of our unconscious creativity and conscious desire to communicate with others will increase our creative output. We welcome individuals of all levels who are interested in answering these questions! Instructor emails:, The above thoughts will be common threads that weave their way throughout the weekend. Included in the workshop will be an informal image lecture (dialogue), demonstration, group and individual instruction, and critique. Steve will also be open to allowing flexibility to facilitate the needs of the participants and will be in contact with participants who pre-register with thoughts on how to prepare for the experience.

About This Organizer

The Art Center is a community arts organization dedicated to improving quality of life by promoting the enjoyment and understanding of the visual arts and related arts through studio art instruction, educational programs for children and adults, exhibitions and the acquisition, care and display of a permanent art collection.


Inspiring educational classes and a commitment to providing access to art for all people have been at the heart of The Art Center's mission since for over 60 years. "Participatory," "experiential," and "artist-driven" are words that describe the variety of programming from traditional to contemporary offered year round. Everyone can take the creative plunge through educational activities that are free and open to the public or provided at low tuition rates thanks to generous donors and sponsors. You can even apply for one of our need-based scholarship. Everyone should be a part of this vibrant creative community, and now there is no reason not to pick up a brush, a dirty piece of charcoal or even throw a bowl on the potter's wheel. Welcome to The Art Center, where creativity is life altering.

There is a class request list if you do not find what you, your child or teen are looking for. The Art Center holds five class sessions every year in painting, drawing, bookmaking, photography, glass and much more. Our programs seek to inspire individuals of all ages to explore, develop and celebrate their creativity.
