January workshops with Steel Painter Mike Elsass


Two New Workshops with Steel Painter Mike Elsass – in Dayton

Thursday, 1/12/12, 4-6 PM, and Wednesday, 1/18/12, 6-8 PM

Dayton painter Mike Elsass, known for his striking abstract acrylic paintings on rusted steel, has painted and taught throughout the U.S. and Canada. His artwork is represented in fine art galleries throughout the country, including Springs Gallery in Yellow Springs. We were delighted to host him twice outside our gallery this past Fall and he has asked us to host his upcoming Winter workshops in Dayton as well. Mike will once again share his knowledge and materials in two fun and spontaneous sessions.

Painting this time will take place in Mike’s Front Street Studio in Dayton. Students will meet at 16 Brown St., in Dayton (Mike’s Color of Energy Gallery near corner of Brown and E. 5th St. in Oregon District); then you’ll carpool or caravan from there to the Studio. There is no age limit. All materials and supplies will be provided and students will be able to take home a piece of their own creation. The cost is $70 for one workshop or $140 for both. Registrations are being accepted now through the day of the workshop. Forms are available at Springs Gallery and on our site. You may drop off, mail, email or call your registration information and payment to Springs Gallery. Students must have a paid Springs Gallery receipt to receive their materials and participate on that day.
