Single Student Exhibit - Susan Keen
"I have always admired houses that have "character." In St. Tammy parish I had so many to choose from! One of my goals as an artist was to enhance my understanding of perspective, so sketching and painting houses was a natural choice.
The Chicken Coop is located on the grounds of St. Joseph Abbey and will soon be the home of Abbey Artworks. Otis House is located in Fairview State Park. The Mandeville gazebo is located on the lakefront. The other houses are private residences." Susan Keen

Abbey Art Works
is pleased to share its first
One Artist Exhibition: Nancy Tigert
The goal of Abbey Art Works is to encourage those who always wanted to learn to paint but, as with beginners in any endeavor, they needed the supportive nudge of experienced instruction.
Nancy was among the first Pioneer Class of AAW. They were all complete beginners in drawing and painting. Now they are ready to confidently share their work with you.
This August 2014 Workshop was sold out with a waiting list! Thanks to all who participated. See samples below of original work done from still life. One half of the participants had never painted before
Look for notice of an encore of this successful event in 2015.
