Anne Pentland, whose work is currently available in the Museum Store, will host the Tiny Shiny African Wildlife Paintings workshop. These are paintings on wood with acrylic, ink and/or collage, coated with varnish. Anne will supply the images for attendees to work from, and they can then either free hand interpret them or use carbon paper to transfer the image.
Anne Pentland received her bachelor’s degree in studio art from UC Davis in 1987, studying under such noted artists as Robert Arneson, Manuel Neri and Wayne Thiebaud. She teaches art at Calistoga Elementary School (1995-present) and is Assistant Director at Nimbus Arts in St Helena. She works in pastel, watercolor, acrylic, oil, mosaic, and clay. Her work currently focuses on endangered species.
