Art and Wine Workshops with Sondra Holtzman and Katie Wendel
Our mission is to promote a sense of adventure through wine education and artistic expression.
All levels of artistic experience in watercolor and pastel are welcome.
Alaska: Art and Wine on the Water | July 31-August 4
Join Wine Specialist and recent Alaska resident Katie Wendel, and Artist Sondra Holtzman on Prince of Wales Island for art, wine, whale watching and sightseeing. Visit the native village of Kasaan - one of two remaining Haida villages in the United States - and watch a Master Totem Carver at work. Walk among the totems in an ancient rain forest. Paint the scene on the dock with the day's fishing catch alongside colorful fishing boats. Partake in the freshest seafood you'll ever experience, expertly paired with wines from the Pacific Northwest and around the world. As an added bonus, you might catch a glimpse of spouting Humpback whales on our boat tour, or from shore.

In this unique workshop, we will create magical rust prints on mixed media paper, using found objects from the Oregon landscape to craft a one-of-a-kind rust print journal. A small weaving will embellish the cover and is perfect for incorporating small rusted found-objects. Students will craft an accordion-style text block for the journal using rust prints that can be further sewn or cut to create intriguing effects. Your rust journal becomes a record of a journey into the geographical as well as inner landscapes, enhanced by personal experience.
Individually crafted art instruction tailored to the artistic goals of each person.
$300 per day | $45 per hour| $75 per hour for a semi-private lesson
Creativity coaching with Sondra has been an enriching and valuable experience. We have explored possibilities 'outside the box' that have expanded my world of opportunities. She is a good listener and has many ideas and suggestions, taking me to places I would have never thought to go. We discuss art making as well as ways to share my work. Sondra is a professional artist with a good business sense, as well as an endless source of inspiration. I treasure our coaching sessions together as my time for creative growth....J.M., Bend, Oregon
I have been taking pastel and watercolor lessons from Sandy for several years. She is always encouraging, helpful and full of information. As an instructor, she embraces the surprises and is ever helpful when dullness threatens to take hold of a painting. I especially enjoy pastel as it can be altered and layered, yielding great depth...L.R., Bend, Oregon
