From the first time I stepped into a classroom, I’ve been fascinated by the world of learning. My inquisitive mind absorbed everything and my senses went on overload. Now, I’m a bit more selective but I am still drawn & intrigued by the creative mind in action and the infinite possibilities of innovation.

The Sedona Arts Center just completed an exciting three month process to develop a new Strategic Plan for implementation. We learned so much along the way from our constituencies, our community and each other. Along the way, we discovered the common descriptor for the Arts Center is “life changing.” By and large, people are drawn to Sedona to discover more about themselves, to renew body and soul or to reinvent themselves after a corporate career. Here in the pages of the ArtZine, you’ll find just that. Infinite possibilities to discover your creative self in a new way, hone skills in a medium you love or branch out into something new to feed your soul.

The Arts Center is a perfect place filled with comradery and comfort to reinvent ourselves and explore new interests. As an educational institution in the Arts, we bring outstanding artists in their fields to teach in a nurturing environment and to share their passion surrounded in beauty. It is our belief that creativity expressed enlivens us and keeps us growing at any age. It’s an exciting time for us to focus on our Vision as a premier provider of arts education and enrichment in diverse mediums for all ages; explore new ways to collaborate with other organizations in making “Sedona a Learning Center for the Arts”; celebrate the connection between the Arts and the human spirit and ensure a fiscally sound and sustainable future for the Arts Center. We hope you join us for the first time or once again to fuel the inner journey towards creative discovery, learning and sharing for the sheer joy of it all!

We encourage you to co-create with us! Bring six friends together who want to learn or engage with a particular instructor and we’ll help create the art experience of your dreams. We want artists and art lovers alike to know that everyone has the potential to express creativity, given the right skills.

Mei Wei Wong Executive Director

“My love affair with the Arts Center began in 1969 when I signed up for a class. While working my day job at the foundry, I learned to sculpt at the Arts Center night classes. I later progressed to teaching that same class. The Arts Center was kind enough to let me sculpt Sedona Schnebly in the Art Barn. Through the Arts Center I’ve been able to develop my artistic talent and to literally change my life.”

School of the Arts


The Greatest Perfection is Imperfection? Many philosophers, including the ancient Greeks, have argued that the highest form of perfection must include some of the ‘incompleteness’ of imperfection. A certain amount of ‘incomplete ness’ in art allows the audience to interact – in fact forces the audience to be active – to meet the artwork with their own effort of mind and imagination. The School itself is also an ongoing, “unfinished” project and we welcome your input as we move forward. We have published an annual catalog the last few years but this current catalog features only the next 6 months. We will be publishing another catalog in January - yet to be determined is whether we will move to publishing twice yearly or simply shift to an annual January catalog…let us know your opinion. Would you like to recommend an artist as an instructor? Let me know directly via email:

And… know that the website will always be the most up-to-date version of our offerings. Be sure to look at our “Art Experiences” page on the web and our “Chronological List of Workshops” to see the latest additions to programming. New for this catalog – See the Business of Art Page 13 – Expanded offerings associated with the Plein Air Festival Page 6-7 - “Virtual Instruction” Page 9 and “Satellite Studios” on Page 20.

Joshua Been will clarify the mystery of creating effective illusions in the context of plein air painting. Through demonstration and one-on-one attention, the goal will be to appreciate the relationships between VALUES, the importance of SHAPE and design and how to see and execute differences in EDGES. Different ways to apply the paint will result in an effective juxtaposition of TEXTURES.

Bruce Gómez is known for capturing the sparkling beauty of nature with the immediacy of pastels. Students will learn to choose an appropriate paper and apply the lessons of building a pastel painting while working from life in the beautiful Sedona landscape. Bruce took multiple awards in last year’s 7th Annual Sedona Plein Air Festival. Learn to use colors that bring your drawing to life.

This workshop is for those with some experience in landscape painting who wish to focus on issues particular to plein air painting in oils. Focus issues will be the selection of the subject, design of the canvas and blocking in values. We will explore color combinations and how they can be used to create the effect of aerial or atmospheric perspective to make a convincing sense of depth.

If old architecture, majestic temples, and picturesque streets fascinate you as an artist, then this week-long workshop in Sedona is for you! The workshop will entail sketching, plein air painting, and studio work. Each day, students will participate in a teacher-directed ‘show and tell hour’ during which students will discuss their accomplishments and concerns in a lighthearted environment.

Learn to capture the beauty of light from this Best of Show winner at last year’s festival. Betty Carr teaches students to accurately portray the effect of light on any subject, both in oil and in watercolor. Students can work in either medium and will explore a variety of locations in beautiful Sedona. This weeklong workshop begins directly following the 8th Annual Sedona Plein Air Festival.

Every painter will tell you that an important (and most enjoyable) part of being an artist is to paint outdoors. For centuries many of the world’s great artists have painted on location to capture fleeting moments of exquisite color and light. These artists often translated their sketches in the studio to create their most important works of art.

In this 3 day workshop students will work on using field studies and other reference materials to create studio landscape paintings. The class will start with an abbreviated lecture on the fundamentals of sound painting, including a discussion of the importance of drawing, value, design and color. Students will also focus on seeing in terms of mass and form.

This workshop will give you a “virtual toolbox” of basic techniques & familiarity with the materials for painting with oils and acrylics. We will explore still-life and landscape painting directly and ways to use photography as a creative tool. A mid-week venture will have students taking photos & creating sketches on-site in beautiful Sedona for later use in developing a studio painting.

Brian Davis will demonstrate and teach the process that has made him one of the most popular floral painters today. Experienced students may complete a painting during the workshop, less experienced artists will have learned all the techniques that Brian will be demonstrating and so can finish the painting they have started on their own. Lots of one-on-one with the instructor!

The practice of art can be part of our daily experience. Through this practice, we begin to realize a deeper communion with the world we live in and new ways of seeing. This five-day intensive workshop invites painters at all levels to immerse themselves in the pursuit of the luminous landscape. We will learn to develop strong composition, and how to build a successful painting.

Taught with patience, humor, and the practical goal to be able to enjoy drawing for the rest of your life, this course is designed for absolute beginners and those who wish to refresh their drawing skills. Guiding you toward your own personal style, the class explores five key techniques of drawing and ways they can be combined.

Is getting started scary? Does carrying everything keep you from painting/sketching? Whether you’re a raw beginner or a professional, Pocket Sketching is for you. The format is only 4 x 6 inches and can go anywhere. When you’re working, everything fits in your “personal space”. In a café, on the subway, on a horse, who’s to notice but you? Learn enough to play for a lifetime.

We will use subject matter as a point of departure in this workshop to focus on the artist’s journey as an emotional response in paint. Still-life, landscape and figure will all be explored as we learn to do small, quick paintings that get at the essentials of good painting. What color? What value and temperature? How thick or thin? Learn to convey emotion, space, atmosphere and light itself, with paint.

Learning to simplify and avoid overworking are the goals of the class. I use the same approach for figures, still-life and landscapes. First we’ll use contour drawing, helping students to concentrate on interconnecting shapes rather than on isolated objects. Next we’ll practice “direct painting”, using as few overwashes as possible. We’ll concentrate on good paint consistency.

Who Mixed-Up My Media?

by Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson

A mixed media work of art is one which combines multiple painting and drawing materials and methods, rather than just one medium. Any number of materials may be utilized, such as paint, ink, pastel, torn paper, fabric, transfers, etc. The artist may choose to use two or many more mediums in any mixed media piece. Working with this mixed-up technique can be fun and exciting; combining all your favorite art supplies has its advantages. Consider the benefits of painting the background of a large canvas with the broad strokes of a 4-inch brush and then adding detail with the fine points of markers and colored pencils. Ponder the texture you could incorporate by gluing papers or fabric under and over acrylic paint. Embrace the unpredictable qualities of fluid acrylics or watercolors as the backdrop to some very detailed gyotoku fish prints. With mixed media, the options and combinations are endless.

No experience is required for this unique weekend of art immersion with a master teacher and artist. Joella guides you to finding your own rich, personal content through her own process of collage and spontaneous painting. These intuitive works are then assembled into a life-size collage that expresses a map of your entire life! You will learn surprising things about the source of art and yourself.

Paper Painting is an intense workshop in which students are taught a unique figurative collage technique. Students will learn to make a beautiful palette of colors with various papers and create an under-painting and collage with paper for a final finish. Working with photographic reference, students will explore drawing, composition, proportion, value, color and collage.

Elizabeth St. Hillaire Nelson

In my studio, I have many different art supplies at my disposal. Some of my favorite detail oriented media include Derwent Inktense pencils and Staedtler Mars Lumocolor Permanent Fine Point Markers. For broad fields of color I love Golden Fluid Acrylics and for stamping and dry brushing I use Golden Tube Acrylics. As of late I have been experimenting with old wooden type and Speedball Block Printing Ink to add numbers and letters into my work. Mixed media is considered to be a 20th century art form. One hundred years ago in 1912, Picasso incorporated a piece of oil cloth in with his oil paint to create “Still Life with Chair Caning”. This was the very beginning of collage, one specific form of mixed media involving various materials glued to a surface.

Combining aggressive textures and unusual mediums with various “raw” materials, the mixed media abstract painting creates a unique magnetism that engages the viewer. The method becomes the message through the alchemy of play between materials and emotions. Join Jan Sitts in the adventure of learning new processes of layering material that will lead to new discoveries!

Stain, paint, embed, layer, stitch, crumple, fold, form and dip! Use a wide variety of handmade and purchased papers including recycled paper elements, old book pages, photographs, vintage letters and envelopes, magazine imagery, and small 3D objects. You will learn to combine encaustic and paper to create unique wax-based collage, assemblage and mixed media works.

What could be more fun than experimenting with multiple combinations of favorite art supplies? You never know what you will come up with, and when you achieve an effect that you love, you may never be able to duplicate it. The unpredictable nature of mixed media is what keeps it exciting and will keep you coming back for more. medium: acrylic tuition: $550 . . . 10 SEDONA ARTS CENTER 888 954 4442 928 282 3809 SEDONAARTSCENTER.COM

This 5-day workshop will enable the student to produce a classical portrait. Lance Richlin is the author of the best selling book in the world on portrait techniques. He will guide you in the finest Baroque painting methods. Explore blending, wet into wet and refining of details. You will also learn secret methods of using impasto to create ultra-realistic textures.

Lorri’s 3-day workshop will present participants with a new way of working with clay. Using fiberclay (regular ceramic clay with special fibers added to it), she teaches skills and techniques that encourage fragile and elongated forms that are often regarded as impossible to make and fire. The class will culminate in a raku firing so that you will leave with your finished sculpture.

People say to me, “I wish I could paint.” I try to explain to them that they can, but they never believe me. Students are worried sick because they aren’t sure if they Erl Van Aken painted entirely from life by Lance Richlin have enough talent. I wish I could get them all to realize that they do have enough talent. The truth is that anyone can learn to paint realistic portraits—all that’s required is proper technique and a couple years of practice. Of course, I can still take pride in my accomplishment. I’m proud that I learned the best techniques and practiced them. But the pride I allow myself is comparable to any professional who has earned an advanced degree. In previous eras (from the Renaissance to the early 20th century), one could go to an academy or atelier and expect to leave with skills similar to those of the master. The ability to paint realistically was considered the birthright of anyone, in the same way that people can learn to write or multiply. There was/is no such thing as magical artistic talent that rare individuals are born with. “In medicine, do people become doctors because in youth they discovered their “knack” for surgery? No, doctors learn their trade from medical school. The same goes for art.”

One of the lessons we learn through art is that spontaneity is often well planned. Pierre Mion will guide students in creating the elusive watercolor image that is both solid and spontaneous, gestural, yet rich with the evocation of detail and specificity. Students of all levels are welcome in this step-by-step approach to the figure in watercolor. You will learn to use the vignette and so much more!

Old as the Egyptians and most famous during the Renaissance, egg tempera painting is becoming increasingly popular with artists today. Tempera has unsurpassed luminosity. Dozens of glazes and scumbles can be applied in a day, and yet the medium also allows for meticulous linear detailing. Because of its luminosity & fine line work, egg tempera is ideal for rendering the human face.

Contemporary Clay by Jim Romberg An “Other” medium; New Perception Required! Contemporary work in clay is in a state of excited & energetic development. Liberated from strict definitions of “pottery” by the “Revolution In Clay “ of the 1950’s in Los Angeles, and under the influence of sensual and textured Japanese Ceramics and the new energy of Abstract Expressionism in painting, clay was given new forms of surface, texture and content that meshed easily with the most contemporary painting and sculpture of that day. And curiously, as these developments have continued, ranging from the figurative to the conceptual, the centuries old archetypal vessel form also participates in this expanding expressive field.

Methods of easy glaze formulation & glaze manipulation will follow with unusual glaze applications. Use of the kiln for color enhancement through control of the atmosphere & heat with actual firing of students’ work.

3-Day Beginners Workshop The cutting edge industry of metal clay is one of the fastest expanding branches of the jewelry industry.

A material that has been for centuries at the heart of the spiritual, artistic, and functional needs of so many cultures finds itself today in a fascinating quandary. How can we understand and appreciate contemporary work? The question of “is it art or is it craft?” has been long used as a template for investigation. This has finally been recognized as inadequate to deal with all the particulars of creations in clay. The conclusions reached seldom captured the essence of the work. After many tortuous debates, it is being realized that ceramic objects assert their identity as clay objects, not as a subset of painting or sculpture. More is to be gained by considering them for the qualities they inherently possess such as malleability, qualities of firing and glaze, 3-dimensions, etc. Consequently the “otherness” of ceramics is being fully seen with the capability of expanding content and experience in the artistic realm. Contemporary clay defines its own terms of interpretation and appreciation, inviting the viewer into a new territory enhancing life as only clay can. 12

Raku Ceramics, from its birth in 16th century Japan to its explosive arrival and widespread practice in the USA in the 1950s, remains a philosophy and practice that stimulates an intense involvement with every aspect of creating and finishing ceramic forms. Inviting a distinctly hands-on approach, this ever-evolving aesthetic and technique lends itself to the development of expression.

These four workshops can be taken independently, however together they provide you with a clear path to marketing yourself as an artist. Working with specialized experts in their respective fields, you will essentially have a “design team” for your message. This will help you hone your narrative and public presentation skills on your website, in gallery presentations, in a book, or one-on-one with potential buyers. This process will even give you a clearer understanding of your own work and therefore how to best present it to the world.

“The welcoming community I find at the Sedona Arts Center nourishes my life and my art. SAC gives me the opportunity to learn, teach, socialize and gives me a place to exhibit my paintings. Sedona Arts Center is the Heart of Sedona. “In 1951, Nassan Gobran, sculptor and founder of the Sedona Arts Center, told me that he saw a need in Sedona for an arts center like Tanglewood in Lennox, Massachusetts. This center would provide nourishment and enrichment to culturestarved residents and visitors. An Arts Center would also identify Sedona as a serious art environment. Ten years later, his vision became a reality. For the past 50 years since its founding, the Sedona Arts Center has been and is the cultural and educational anchor of Sedona. Sedona Arts Center is dedicated to sharing the enjoyment and importance of having art in one’s life and making arts education a priority. Now, we all have the responsibility to ensure that this treasured institution continues to exist in Sedona.”

Mahoney is Professor of Art Emerita, University of La Verne where she began developing the art Department in 1964. She holds a B.A. in Art from Northern Arizona University and an MFA in painting from Claremont Graduate University. In 1996 Mahoney was honored as Distinguished Alumnae by Northern Arizona University during its Centennial Year Celebration. In 1997, Scripps College Fine Arts Foundation honored Mahoney for her achievement in the arts.

-Joella Jean Mahoney

“These past eight years have been so exciting for me as an artist and an instructor at the Arts Center. To share knowledge with others is the most exciting and rewarding experience of my life.”

“Since 1978 my true connection to Sedona and its art community has been through the Sedona Arts Center. SAC continues to be relevant and is still the hub for visitors exploring Sedona’s art community.”
