Dalhart Windberg, nationally known Texas artist, master painter and former South Texas resident, is returning to our Bayfront to share an evening of insights and tips as he creates a painting before us.  Tickets for the Feb.26th event will cost $10.00 and can be purchased at the Art Center of Corpus Christi, in person or by mail.

The Thursday event will begin at 5:30pm.  A mid-program break, around 7:00, will allow us to socialize with Dalhart and his family crew.  The night will end with Mr. Windberg completing his painting around 9:30pm.

Serious artists will need a good nights sleep.  At 9:00am Friday morning, we will host the first session of a three day oil painting workshop led by Dalhart and assisted by son Michael and Doyle Koenig.  The workshop will focus on landscapes and is geared toward practicing artists.  Easels, tables and lights will be provided. The workshop will take place in our Bayview room.  Each day of painting will start at 9:00am and end at 5:00pm.  Several small canvases may be completed and, in the latter stages, participants may also bring in something they have been working on and wish to complete.

Workshop Dates: February 27, 28 & March 1st, 2009  9AM - 5PM
