The Artworks Gallery will offer a series of Landscape Workshops with Roberta Nelson on Fridays from February 25 through April 1. The six week course will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Artworks Gallery, 109 Fall Street in downtown Seneca Falls.
Roberta Nelson says, “This six weeks course is geared to learning the elements of landscape composition. It is geared for those who would like to begin landscape painting or drawing and for those who would just like refresh their skills.”
