EXPO Art Workshops

Escapade Meeting Room

Bring some color and creativity to your day with a series of exciting art workshops presented by the Killington Arts Guild. Each workshop will last approximately 30 minutes, and will give participants a chance to experience a variety of art forms. Local artists and art lovers formed the Killington Arts Guild more than 15 years ago to promote art as an enriching part of everyday life. The artists will also have displays set up before and after the workshops.

10 a.m. Burnished Photography with Sally D. Curtis

Sally D. Curtis

Sally D. Curtis will demonstrate techniques using colored pencils to enhance photos.  Curtis is the president of the Killington Arts Guild, and works in several mediums. Traveling is a major passion, and her travels have led her to Europe, Hawaii, Australia, China, Costa Rica, and most recently, Chile. Burnished photography is an ideal art form for travelers, since it is a dry process and requires minimal equipment. After a quick demonstration of techniques, participants will have a chance to try burnishing their own photos.
