Atlanta artist Charlotte Riley Webb has open workshop for intermediate artists in abstract work at Pamoja Art Center July 29 - Aug 1, 10 am to 2 pm

Charlotte Riley Webb is here to lead a week-long workshop for intermediate artists via the sponsorship of Achievement Through Art, Inc, says Luther Cox.

Webb, an artist for 30 years, is represented by galleries in Chicago, Indianapolis and Knoxville as well as in her home, Atlanta. She says, "For decades I was a representational artist but 3 years ago I made a transition to conceptual, abstract art, and this process is what I'm teaching in my Shreveport workshop."

She is giving classes from Tues, July 29, through Fri, Aug 1, at Pamoja Center, 3806 Linwood Ave. Pamoja lies some 5 blocks south of LSU Medical Center. The studio has 5 easels and 3 additional art stations.

Materials to bring to the workshop - aimed at intermediate artists - include pencils, drawing tablet, acrylic paints, 20X24 canvas, and collage materials. Digital cameras and laptops are encouraged.

Webb, who has studied under legendary New Orleans artist John T Scott, will lead the classes at Pamoja from 10 am to 2 pm each day. Please bring a lunch.
