Students will be encouraged to find individual expression of character in the rocks and trees. Upon learning to build a basic compositional environment, course three of the workshop will conclude with an introduction to ways of reading and appreciating the unique perspective, scale and layering of ink and brush landscape painting. $60 each or $150 all 3 clases

    Hello Everyone,

    My name is Andrew Groth. I am an artist and musician, new to Idaho, looking to connect with the Idaho arts community I’ve been in Boise for just over two months and in that time I have gone on a few art tours, attended shows at the VAC, reached out to a few artists and the Boise Dept. of Arts and History, gone to a couple of first Thursdays and Fridays and recently became a member of the TVAA. In fact, some of my pastels are in the FOCUS show at the Nampa Civic Center! I have received a lot of support, suggestions and advice. Thank you! However, there are a few challenges still remaining.

    First, money. I am taking advantage of any and all grant opportunities that I can find that I qualify for, which there are few. Alexa Rose is closed until next year. What I really need is a job. I have tons of experience in food and beverage sales and service, but I’ve done that to death and am dedicated to moving away from that industry. I am trying very hard to find work more closely related to art. I have been focused on museums, galleries, custom framing, or interior design.

    Second, studio space. I mostly work on large format paintings and drawings. I have scoured the internet, Craigslist, Swell, Bosco, Surel’s Place and the TVAA, but have only found space at the Gem Center. They are nice spaces, but are a bit out of my price range.

    Lastly, connections. Idaho already feels like home to me. Like I’ve found a combination of all of the things I’ve loved about places I’ve lived in the past. Yet, also something new. In addition, everyone has been so welcoming and kind. Somehow, people in Idaho haven’t lost the ability to care for one another. Including recent arrivals, like myself. My intention is to find ways to contribute, professionally and artistically, in order to earn the privilege of living here. I think I have done a lot in the short time I’ve been here and I know eventually things will start to click, but I am still looking for some people to hang out with.

    I know my challenges aren’t unique, or anything most artists haven’t had to cope with. However, my hope is that some of you will recognize the nature of these obstacles from your own lives and share those experiences and insight with me. So, if any of you know of a job opportunity in the arts, where to find some studio space, or would just like to grab a coffee, or a beer sometime, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you!

    Andrew Groth
