Colored Pencil Magazine's SOAR Workshops Coordinator

Always up to a new challenge, I accepted the role of the Colored Pencil Magazine's SOAR Workshops Coordinator in the Southwest Washington State/North Portland, Oregon metro areas.

After spending last Friday on the phone and computer, I found several perfect venues for the spring-time workshops, with three meeting the CPM's requirements. I also learned the protocol to be included in the Oregon Society of Artists schedule.

While  all of that was thrilling in itself, a bonus was actually meeting art folks in my area that I may never have met if I remained an isolated cave artist.  Following my phone/computer contacts I made visits to the potential venues and met and shared long chats with the proprietors.

It has been a fun and rewarding few days and I look forward to finalize these offerings to artists in my area supporting colored pencil masters and students.
